I am trying to help my niece with 9th grade Algebra problem:

A school charges students $1.00 and adults $2.00p to attend a basketball game, There were 80 more students than adults in attendance. The gate was $980.00, how many students and adults attended the game?

How would you set this problem up and solve it? Thank you in advance.
