A.4000(1+0.22)(1+0.15)x B.4000(1+0.22)(1-0.15)x C.4000(1-0.22)(1-0.15)x D.4000(1-0.22)(1+0.15)x

    B. 15% decrease would be (1 - 0.15) 22% increase would be (1 + .22)

    ok 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)

    and we can cancel C and D and by what we did can see that since the sale prices lower we can cancel out A and the answer is B
