Last Saturday, the MoviePlex Iheater sold 1,456 tickets. The theater sold 6 times as many regular price tickets as it sold discount tickets. Earl says the expression 1,456 divided by 6 gives the number of discount prices tickets is Earl correct? If not write the correct expression. Explain your answer.
Well, one divides by 7, actually, because the total number of tickets is 6+1 times the # of discount tickets. That is, 1,456/7. You don't need to actually perform this division.
