    To get 10% of a number, move the decimal point one place to the right. You get roughly 7338. Take that number and subtract from your total.

    Basically if 10% of the seats are empty, 90% are full. So you take 10% of the total seats (7338) and subtract that number from the total amount of seats (73,379)
