Q:
# A high school drama club is selling tickets to their show. There is a maximum of 400 tickets. The tickets cost $10 (if bought before day of show) and $15 (if bought day of show). Let x represent the number of tickets sold before the day of the show and y represents the number of tickets sold the day of the show. To meet the expenses of the show, the club must sell at least $3500 worth of tickets. The club sells 300 tickets before the day of the show. Is it possible to sell enough additional tickets on the day of the show to meet the expenses of the show? Justify your answer.
