let ticket price be $5

5 tickets = 25 $

discounted price for 5 tickets 15$

\(\frac{(25-15)}{25} *100 =40\)

let price of 1 ticket be x$

therefore Actual price of 3 tickets and 5 tickets is 3x$ & 5x$ respectively

At special rate Cost of 5 tickets is 3x$ ( No other information is given for S therefore S must be equal to 5)

therefore savings = actual price of 5 tickets - special price = 5x-3x =2x

% saved = 2x/5x = 40%
