(A) 300

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

We can let x = the number of customers and create the following equation:

6x - 1,750 = 1x

5x = 1,750

x = 350

Answer: C

let the number of people be x.

Profit = selling price - cost.

Note:we have to make all the components parallel. Either all components using must be for single guy or for group of people.

6x -1750 = 1

5x = 1750

x = 350.

The best answer is C.
