Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets knock this out. put x = number of $75 tickets sold, then since the total is 540 then the number of $40 tickets has to be \[540x\] since the total is 540 then the amount of income is \[75x+40(540x)\] and you know this is $27,200 so set \[75x+40(540x)=27200\] and solve for x
