Hi,

let there be x tickets sold at $10,
so, the tickets sold at $70 would be (30-x).
and total revenue would be: $10(x)+$70(30-x)

Using (1)
1570 < 10(x)+70(30-x) < 1670
or 1570 < 10x + 2100 - 70x < 1670
or 1570-2100 < -60x < 1670-2100
or -530 < -60x < -430 (multiply by -1)
or 430 < 60x < 530
or 7.16 < x < 8.33,
since x is integer and only one value exist between 7.1 & 8.3, i.e., 8
thus, x=8. Sufficient.

Using (2),
20 < special exhibit ticket < 25
or 20 < 30-x < 25
or -10 < -x < 5
or 5 < x <10,
thus, x = 6, 7, 8, 9
Clearly, not sufficient.

Thus, Answer is (A).

Regards,

i did following:
General=G Special=S
G+S =30
70*S+ 30*G= Revenue

Statement 1:
1570<Revenue<1670

70*S+70*G=2100
70*S+ 30*G= 1660 [Within the range]

40G=440
G=11

70*S+70*G=2100
70*S+ 30*G= 1620 [Within the range]

40G= 480
G=12

I am having multiple integer value for General tickets G[11, 12]. What am i doing wrong?

A museum sold 30 tickets on Saturday. Some of the tickets sold were $10 general exhibit tickets and the rest were $70 special exhibit tickets. How many general exhibit tickets did the museum sell on Saturday?

Say the museum sold \(G\) general exhibit tickets and \(30-G\) special exhibit tickets, then the museum's total revenue wold be \(10G+70(30-G)=2100-60G\).

(1) The museum’s total revenue from ticket sales on Saturday was greater than $1,570 and less than $1670 --> \(1570<2100-60G<1670\) --> \(-530<-60G<-430\) --> reduce by -10 and flip the sign: \(43<6G<53\) --> since \(G\) must be an integer then \(G=8\). Sufficient.

(2) The museum sold more than 20, but fewer than 25, special exhibit ticket on Saturday --> \(20<S<25\) --> \(S\) could be be 21, 22, 23 or 24, so \(G\) could be 9, 8, 7, or 6 respectively. Not sufficient.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.

Revenue=70S+10G not 70S+30G.
