As the auditor for my local theme park, I noticed that on Saturday there were 4296 children and 2143 adults and the takings were £98,718.

However, on Sunday, there were 5146 children and 2807 adults and the takings were £122,570.

How much were the adults tickets and children's tickets?

A customer at a 7-11 store selected four items to buy, and was told that the cost was 7.11. He was curious that the cost was the same as the store name, so he enquired as to how the figure was derived. The clerk said that he had simply multiplied the prices of the four individual items. The customer protested that the four prices should have been ADDED, not MULTIPLIED. The clerk said that that was OK with him, but, the result was still the same: exactly 7.11. What were the four prices?
