#### Question

Some tickets of ₹ 200 and some of ₹ 100, of a drama in a theatre were sold. The number of tickets of ₹ 200 sold was 20 more than the number of tickets of ₹ 100. The total amount received by the theatre by sale of tickets was ₹ 37000. Find the number of ₹ 100 tickets sold.

#### Solution

Let the number of tickets of ₹ 100 be x.

Number of tickets of ₹ 200 = x + 20

From the given information,

100(x) + 200 (x + 20) = 37000

⇒ 100x + 200x + 4000 = 37000

⇒ 300x = 37000 - 4000

⇒ 300x = 33000

⇒ x = 110

∴ The number of tickets of ₹ 100 = 110.

Number of tickets of ₹ 200 = 110 + 20 = 130.

Hence, the number of tickets of ₹ 100 is 110.
