#### Question

By increasing the cost of entry ticket to a fair in the ratio 10: 13, the number of visitors to the fair has decreased in the ratio 6: 5. In what ratio has the total collection increased or decreased?

#### Solution

Let the cost of the entry ticket initially and at present be 10 x and 13x respectively.

Let the number of visitors initially and at present be 6y and 5y respectively.

Initially, total collection = 10x × 6y = 60 xy

At present, total collection = 13x × 5y = 65 xy

Ratio of total collection = 60 xy: 65 xy = 12: 13

Thus, the total collection has increased in the ratio 12: 13.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
