Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so you have tick sold last year = f and last year price tickets = x first lets find out how many tickets were sold this year. It has to be more than last year Since last year sold 4000 and this year they sold 22% or 0.22 more we can say (4000* 0.22) + 4000 we can factor out 4000 [1 * 0.22) + 1 ] * 4000 [(0.22) + 1 ] * 4000 or 4000( 1 + 0.22)
