    748 tickets. You take away 150 from 898 because 150 less tickets were sold the day of the golf tournament

    X = # of before tickets, y = # of day of tournament tickets

    x + y = 898

    x = y + 150

    y + 150 + y = 898

    2y + 150 = 898

    2y = 898 - 150

    2y = 748

    y = 748/2

    y = 374 < = = = day of tournament

    x + y = 898

    x + 374 = 898

    x = 898 - 374

    x = 524 <===before the tournament
