The school auditorium has 8 rows of seats, divided into 3 sections. Each section has 15 seats. Which one the following would be the correct way to figure out the total number of seats?
a. 8x15
b. 8x3x15
c. 3x3x8
d. 8x3
Isn’t this an error? I think the answer would be 3x15…it doesn’t matter how many rows…not in the question…not relevant? Am I missing something?

math 
Ms. Sue,
The total number of seats in the auditorium includes the 8 rows.
8 * 3 * 15

april,
Wouldn't that only be correct if it stated that each ROW has 15 seats and not each section has 15? 3 sections/15 per section= 45 or if it was worded the same only saying each ROW has 15 then it would be 8x3x15? No???
