  1. Answer:
    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$
