    Will runs a lucky dip stall
    tickets cost 50p each
    Tickets ending in 00 win £20
    Tickets ending in 5 win £2
    There were 850 tickets numbered 1-850
    he sold ALL OF THE WINNING TICKETS and SOME OF THE LOSING TICKETS
    he made a profit of £65
    how many losing tickets did he sell??

    Well if he sold all of the winning tickets then that's 8 X 00 so that's 8x 20 =£160 gone from the profits.
    Then £2x 5's = £340
    850/5=170
    Altogether that's £340 lost from the profits.
    So that means he must of made £405 from ticket sales.
    8 are 00
    170 are 5's
    you need to have sold 810 tickets to reach £405 so subtract 810-178=632
    so he must have sold 632 losing tickets.
    i did all of this in my head no calc so sorry if i got that wrong but from not checking my workings it looks right. Any chance of a Rep as a thanks if i'm quick to answer this. Then again i could be like the 6th to get it which would kind of suck. ho well, rep me anyway.
