Answer:There are 8 adults in the group.Step-by-step explanation:Let the number of adults in the group be ‘x’.Given:

Number of children = 1

Number of adults = ‘x’

Cost for a ticket of adult = $9

Cost for a ticket of a child = $6

Total cost = $78

Total cost is equal to total cost of tickets of ‘x’ adults plus cost of ticket of 1 child.Unit cost of 1 adult × Number of adults + cost of ticket of 1 child = Total costFraming in equation form, we get:

Adding -6 on both sides, we get:Dividing both sides by 9, we get:Therefore,

there are 8 adults in the group.
