The theater seats 300 people . How many seats were not sold for the musical? What fraction of the total seats available for the musical were sold as walk-in tickets? If reserved seats cost \$12.50 , how much did the theater make from reserved seats to the musical?

Musical reserved seats= 255
walk-ins = 30

Ms Sue may be busy. 15 seats not sold is correct. \$3187.50 is correct for the amount of money the theater made from the 255 reserved seats sold. The middle answer is not correct; first because it asks for a fraction (and not %) and second because it's the wrong answer. The question asks for the fraction of the total seats available were sold to walk ins. That will be 30 walk ins/300 seats available = 30/300 which reduces to 1/10 as a fraction.
