12 out of 142 people standing in line for tickets were going to see the movie in theater A.
If there were a total of 1704 tickets sold, predict how many people were going to see the movie in theater A?
For every 142 people, 12 are going to A
How many 142's are there in 1704? 1704/142 = 12 sets
so 12sets x 12 people/set = 144 people going to see A
