  2. So we know he has 380 tickets overall and needs 5 for one large action figure and 7 for 2 small action figures. As for the amount he wants, he wants 4 times as many small ones than large ones. Due to how we know the solution of if he can get 80 small action figures, simply put, that would be 80 / 4 = 20. So that means 80 small and 20 large. Now we need to figure out how many tickets that is.
    80 / 2 = 40 x 7 = 280 tickets. 20 x 5 = 100 tickets. That equals exactly 380 tickets. So the answer is yes, he can get 80 small action figures.
