let $$n$$ tickets were unsold. so total sold tickets $$= 120,000-n$$

as $$70$$% (100%-30%=70% or 0.7) revenue did not went to charity so we have -

$$(120,000-n)*10*0.7=357,000$$

$$=>n=69,000$$

So, 70% of the Total Revenue is 357,000

So, Total Revenue is 510000

Given , Tickets went on sale for a 120,000 person concert ....If the price of each ticket was $10... So, No of Tickets not sold is $$\frac{1200000 - 510000}{10}$$, thus answer must be (E) _________________ Thanks and Regards Abhishek....

The problem states that $357,000 is the non-charitable revenue so$357,000 must be equal to 70% of the total revenue.

X = $510,000 Since each ticket is$10, and total revenue is $510,000, then$510,000/\$10 = 51,000 which represents the total amount of tickets sold.

120,000 - 51,000 = 69,000 tickets were unsold (Option E)
