    Answer:

    There were total 2900 seats in the theater.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that:

    Seats filled by students = 1247 seats

    Vacant seats = 57%

    Total percentage of seats = 100%

    Percentage of seats filled by students = (100-57)%

    Percentage of seats filled by students = 43%

    Let,

    x be the total number of seats.

    43% of x = 1247

    \frac{43}{100}x=1247\\0.43x=1247

    Dividing both sides by 0.43

    \frac{0.43x}{0.43}=\frac{1247}{0.43}\\x=2900

    Hence,

    There were total 2900 seats in the theater.
