Question

if 15% of the total ticket sales is $375, what is the value of the total ticket sales?

2 Answer

  • $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

    Step-by-step 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
