Tickets for all but 100 seats in a 10,000seat stadium were sold. Of the tickets sold, 20% were sold at half price and the remaining tickets were sold at the full price of $2. What was the total revenue from ticket sales? A. $15,840 B. $17,820 C. $18,000 D. $19,800 E. $21,780 The question was locked, so this is a repost. What is the quickest way to solve this? I guess rounding is one method. Are there any other methods?

10000 seats > Full Price : Half Price = 8000 : 2000 Price when all seats are filled = 16000 + 2000 = 18000
100 seats are unsold > Loss due to unfilled seats = 20 + 2*80 = 180
Revenue = 18000  180 = 17820
Answer: B

100 are not sold from 10,000
So seats sold=9900
20% is 1980 and remaining 80% is 7920.
each ticket cost 2$ and 1980 cost 1$
So 2*7920 +1980=17820 is ur answer.

What is the quickest way to solve this? I guess rounding is one method. Are there any other methods? The fastest way to solve it, is to ignore at first the fact that 100 were not sold. so 20% of 10,000 = 2000 remaining 8000 sold for 2 dollar = 16000 16,000+2000 = 18,000 (now since 100 tickets) from answer options one can see that the clossest number should be just a bit smaller than 18000 Hence B

A. $15,840 B. $17,820 C. $18,000 D. $19,800 E. $21,780 0.2 x 9,900 = 1,980 tickets were sold for 1 dollar each, so these tickets generated 1,980 dollars in revenue. 9,900  1,980 = 7,920 were sold for 2 dollars each, so these tickets generated 15,840 dollars in revenue. The total revenue earned was 1,980 + 15,840= 17,820 dollars. Answer: B
