Explain.

Accepted Solution

A:

For this case we are going to assume that Nina wrote:

3/4 (1440) + 295.25 + (-33.50).

The expression is correct since we have:

ticket sales were three-fourths as much as yesterday. That means

3/4 (1440)

food sales were down by $ 33.50, that means:

295.25 + (-33.50)

Therefore, today's sales were:

3/4 (1440) + 295.25 + (-33.50).
