The fair sold 1600 tickets on Friday and 1700 tickets on Saturday. Take the equation 2x + 100 = 3300, with x being the days, and the 100 being the extra sold on Saturday. Subtract 100 from 3300, which makes the equation 2x = 3200. x is then 1600. That is the amount of tickets sold on Friday. Add 100 to that and it becomes 1700 tickets sold on Saturday.

3,300 divided by 2 is 1,500 so you would take 100 tickets from Saturday and give them to Friday so you would have sold 1,600 tickets on Friday and 1,500 on Saturday
