Let x be the reservation charge and h be the cost of half ticket.

From condition 2:

cost of total full ticket = cost of full ticket  + cost of reservation

400 = cost of full ticket + x

hence,

cost of full ticket = 400  – x

 

From condition 1:

cost of half ticket = ¾ * cost of full ticket

                           = ¾ *(400 - x)

cost of total half ticket : ¾ *(400 - x)  + x

 

From condition 3:

Cost of total full ticket + 2*cost of total half ticket = 1050

400 + 2* (¾ *(400 - x)  + x) = 1050

2* (¾ *(400 - x)  + x) = 650

¾ *(400 - x)  + x = 325

1200 -3x + 4x = 1300

x = 100
