Explanation

Let x = the total number of tickets sold. Therefore, (x – 100) = the number of tickets Arnaldo sold beyond the first 100. Using the information given, set up an equation and solve:

\(11x + 2(x - 100) = 2,400\)

\(11x + 2x - 200 = 2,400\)

\(13x = 2,600\)

\(x = 200\)

We can let n = the number of tickets sold and create the equation:

2400 = 11(100) + 13(n - 100)

2400 = 1100 + 13n - 1300

2400 = -200 + 13n

2600 = 13n

200 = n

Answer: D
