140 people were at a soccer match. 80 of them bought the tickets at normal price but the rest bought the ticket at a 20% discount. If the total sale amount of the tickets were $1920, what is the normal price of a ticket?

Let the normal cost of  a  ticket =  C

At a 20% discount the cost of a  ticket = .80C

 

So....80 people bought tickest at the  normal price and  60  bought them at the  discounted price

 

80C + 60 * .80C   = 1920

 

80C + 48C  =1920

 

128C  = 1920

 

C = 1920 / 128 =    15 (dollars)  =  the normal price
