In the land of Edisonia, a cinema hall was constructed by public demand. However, the King of Edisonia was an orthodox man who passed a law that women above the age of 21 weren't allowed to see a movie without their husbands. Citizens below the age of 21 were considered children. Children were allowed to see a movie if accompanied by their father. For a particular show all 100 seats in the cinema hall were occupied and at least half the male patrons were accompanied by their wives. At that time, polygamy was looked down upon by the King and hence all the men were monogamous. The cost of a ticket was 100 Eddies for a man (the currency of Edisonia was called 'Eddy'), 80 Eddies for a woman and 20 Eddies for a child. From the sale of tickets for that particular show, the owners received 4000 Eddies. From the given information, deduce the number of men, women and children who attended the show. Provide a detailed explanation along with your answer.
