Total amount earned from the sale of 45\$ reserved seats=  56,250\$
Total amount accruing from the sale of 35\$ seats= 26,250\$
Total seats sold as general = 3000 seats
Total amount accruing from sale of general admission seats= 60,000\$
Total amount garnered from sale of all the tickets= 1,42,500\$
Step-by-step explanation:
Total number of seats available at the auditorium- 5000
A. 25% tickets= reserved seats
Total number of seats= 25*5000/100=1250 tickets
Cost of each seat- 45\$
Total amount earned from the sale of reserved seats=  56,250\$
B. 15% of the seat reserved at 35\$ each
Total number of such seats reserved= 15*5000/100=750 seats
Total amount accruing from the sale of such seats= 26,250\$
C. The remainder of the seats were sold as general seats
Total seats sold as general= 5000-(1250+750) = 3000 seats
D. Cost of each general admission= 20\$
Total amount accruing from sale of general admission seats= Total seats*price of each
= 3000*20\$= 60,000\$
E. Total amount garnered from sale of all the tickets= 60,000\$ + 56,250\$ + 26250\$
=1,42,500\$
