Movie theater X charges $6 per ticket, and each movie showing costs the theatre $1,750. How many people need to

see a movie so that the theater makes $1 of profit per customer?

(A) 300

(B) 325

(C) 350

(D) 375

(E) 400

Even though it's easy, I am so confused? Can we solve logically without profit formula?

Thank You.

Let there be x customers.

Each customer pays $6 for tickets and theater makes $1 profit per customer. So cost of the movie (for the theater)is $5 per customer.

From question we have \($5 * x = 1750\) or \(x = 350\)

Option C
