hi,
let's tabulate:
...................adults................children.............total
day 1:..........100u..............100u + 120.......200u + 120
day 2:............95u..............125u + 150.......220u + 150

(a) 220u + 150 = 2570
so, 220u = 2420
and, 1u = 11
therefore, no. of adults on first day = 100 x 11 = 1100

(b) total no. of people on both days = 420u + 270 = 4890
so, total collected on both days = 4890 x $40 = $195 600

hope this helps.
