$2,500 is the total value of ticket sales. If you divide both $375 and 15% by 15, you will get $25/1 . Then, all you need to do to find the total answer is multiply 25 by 100. This may not have made sense to you, but it is the correct answer.
375/15= 25
15/15= 1
25x100= 2500

Answer:
The value of the total ticket sales is, 2500
Stepbystep explanation:
Let x be the total ticket sales.
As per the statement:
if 15% of the total ticket sales is $375
[tex]\text{15 \% of total ticket} = \frac{15}{100} \times x = \frac{15x}{100}[/tex]
then;
[tex]\frac{15x}{100} = 375[/tex]
Divide both sides by 15 we have;
[tex]\frac{x}{100} =25[/tex]
multiply both sides by 100 we have;
x = 2500
Therefore, the value of the total ticket sales is, 2500
