    Assuming no other taxes and stuff, you can get 3 tickets... But that depends on the percentage of taxes...

    @LagrangeSon678 that is why I've stated the assumption of no tax, to make calculation easier.

    But we don't know how high the tax is. That is why I've made that assumption, which I stated. Hence, since I've stated my assumption, it means that this answer holds if and only if my assumption holds. (i.e. If my assumption holds, the number of tickets you can buy is 3. However, if my assumption does not hold, depending on the tax rate of all the items, I can only buy 2 or 1 ticket(s)).
