A movie place charges $9 for an adult ticket and $6 for a child ticket. On a recent night, the sales of children tickets were 5 times the sale of adult tickets. If the total amount collected for the tickte sales WAS NOT greater than $3000, what is the greatest number of adults who could have purchased the tickets.

I assume the total referred to applies to just the night referred to. Divide $3000 by the sum of $9 and five times $6, discarding any remainder.
