Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:250 ticketsStep-by-step explanation:This week, the tickets sold was 300.The # of tickets sold this week was 120% of last weeks ticket sales.To find out the number of tickets sold last week, first convert 120% into a decimal.120% = 1.2Now, divide 300 [tickets sold this week] by 1.2.If you do this, you get 250.That means 250 tickets were sold last week.To double check our answer, break down 120% again, but this time, differently.100% + 20% = 120%100% = 120% = 0.2Now, multiply 250 by 1.250 x 1 = 250.Now multiply 250 by 0.2250 x 0.2 = 50.250 + 50 = 300So, the amount of tickets sold last week is 250. I hope this helps! :)
