    so, the lottery made $350 from selling the tickets. But the total prize money they are giving away is $(130+90+30) = $250 So, they made $100 in profit. So, the fair price would have been if they made no profit, that is, they sold 1000 tickets for $250. which means, each ticket should have been a quarter. I'm sure you can work out how much extra alice paid after this.
