For every 10 tickets amount of snacks sold is 3*2.25+4*1.5+2*1=$14.75, hence amount of the snacks sales per ticket is $14.75/10=~$1.48.

Answer: A.

Amount of snacks sold for 10 tickets = (2.25*3 + 4*1.5 + 2*1)$ = (6.75 + 6 + 2)$ = 14.75$

Avg amount of snacks sales per ticket sold = 14.75 $/10 = 1.475$
So, Answer is A

Hope It helps!

A. 1.48$
B. 1.58$
C. 1.60$
D. 1.64$
E. 1.70$


10 = 3 * 2.25 + 4 * 1.50 + 2 * 1
10 = 6.75 + 6 + 2
10 = 14.75
Average per ticket = Total Sales / Total number of tickets = 14.75 / 10 = 1.48
Hence answer A

A. 1.48$
B. 1.58$
C. 1.60$
D. 1.64$
E. 1.70$


The average is the following:

(3 x 2.25 + 4 x 1.5 + 2 x 1) / 10

(6.75 + 6 + 2) / 10

14.75/10 = 1.475 ≈ $1.48

Answer: A
