    Hi to all!

    I just need a confirmation that the answer suggested by the website is wrong.

    Answer according to me: B (not quite, but that's the "correctest" one)

    Answer according to the website: A

    Now, how could it be 25% if they were selling 45 tickets over the period A and then 30 tickets over the period B. So now they're selling 15 tickets less than previously and that 15 out of 45, ie. 1/3 decrease in sales, ergo 33,(3)%.

    Please correct me if I'm not thinking straight.

    I am not a mathematician, but I would put it at 33% too.
