1 - Multiply the "Ticket Price" by "Number Sold" in each category. Then add the four totals together.

 

2 - Add up all the tickets sold under "Number Sold"

 

3 - Divide the total in (1) above by the total in (2) above.

 

4 - If you don't make any mistakes, you should get: $4.10 - the average ticket price.
