For a certain performance at a concert hall, a total of 2,350 tickets were sold in the orchestra, first mezzanine, and second mezzanine. How many orchestra tickets were sold?

The number of first mezzanine tickets sold was one-half the number of second mezzanine tickets sold.

The total number of first and second mezzanine tickets sold was 50 percent greater than the number of orchestra tickets sold.

A doesn't tell enough : 0 + 3/2 M = 2350
B is enough : O + 3/2 O = 2350 ---> O = 940.
So B is enough to find out.

B is the answer, since FM + SM = 1.5*O,

and FM + SM + O = 2350 => O = 940.

for me what confused me at first was the word "orchestra"...I thought the orchestra was part of the concert and did not know it was among the ticketsand so i thought we needed only the first and second mezzanine ...i guess we need to watch out for those commas....

now that i know orchestra is also a ticket, i agree with B
