A brand new movie just came to Golden Theater. The theater has a goal of selling 1500 tickets for this movie in the 1st week. The first 2 days it sold 30% of its goal tickets. What is the average number of tickets the theater needs to sell in the next 5 days in order to meet their goal?

Since the theater has a goal of selling 1500 tickets in the first week, and in the first 2 days it sold 30% of its ticket goal, we can do:

 

1500 * 30% = 450

 

This gives us 450, which basically stands for how many tickets were sold in the first 2 days of the first week.

 

Subtracting this (450) from 1500, we get:

 

1500 - 450 = 1050

 

1050 stands for the number of tickets the theater still has to sell (in the remaining 5 days) to meet its goal.

 

Therefore, we can find the average number of tickets the theater has to sell in the remaining 5 days by calculating:
 

1050 / 5 = 210 tickets

 

 

If you're confused, the 210 stands for the average number of tickets the theater has to sell in order to meet its ticket selling goal.

 

 

 

 

Hope this helped, if I made a mistake please let me know!
