## Beautiful_Lier96 2 years ago there were 144 tickets sold for a movie. Theration of the number of child tickets to the number of adult tickets to the number of senior tickets was 4:7L1. how many of eacch type of number of tickets sold.? A: 44child, 77 adult, and 11 senior B: 48 child, 84 adult, and 12 senior C: 60 child, 80 adult, and 4 senior D: 59 child, 77 adult, and 8 senior

4:7:1?

2. Beautiful_Lier96

yea. sorry 4:7:1

Okay, so let me give you a little hint for this. What is 4 + 7 + 1?

4. Beautiful_Lier96

that would b B, but how do i get the first two of that answer ?

Like I said what is 4+7+1, and then It will all make sense.

Then, once you get that # do 144/# =?

7. Beautiful_Lier96

wait i know now. im supposed to add them and then divide by the answer. and which one is equal to 144 is it.

8. Beautiful_Lier96

ididnt do that, i didvided all by twelve then added up to get the sum

Basically the ratios all have to = 144. So you add the ratio's up to get, like you said 12.

Then when you divide by 12, what do you get?

11. Beautiful_Lier96

you get 12 so you times the ration by it.. do you think you can help me with some more ?.

Yes, correct. now we do 4 * 12: 7 * 12: and 1 * 12.... For this since we know 1*12 is 12 we can see B is the answer, so you were correct.

So again we add the sum of the 3 ratios to be 12, then divide the total by the sum, to get 12 again, then we multiply each ratio by that 12 to get our answer.

Tag me in your next Q,s o I can see it. @KonradZuse
