Hey <khaye>,

I believe there are some typo errors with the numbers to Q1. Appreciate that you kindly recheck and verify and re-edit the question. Thank you.
And if you can follow and understand the solution for Q2, you should be able to apply same for Q1 and solve the problem. Thank you again.

As for Q2, following is my worked solution:

Q2.

*** - for alignment purpose

<Adults(A)>
W : M Tot
2 : 3 *** 5

<Children(C)>
G : B Tot
2 : 1 *** 3

5p (A) + 3u (C) = 1280 -- (1)
2p (W) + 2u (G) = 720 -- (2)

Eliminate (p) we have ...

(1)x2:
10p + 6u = 2560 -- (3)

(2)x5:
10p + 10u = 3600 -- (4)

(4)-(3):
10u - 6u --> 3600 - 2560
4u --> 1040
1u --> 260

G = 2u --> 2 × 260 = 520

=====

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
