# In an entertainment programme, 250 tickets of ₹400 and 500 tickets of ₹100 were sold. If the entertainment tax is 40% on a ticket of ₹400 and 20% on a ticket of ₹100, find how much entertainment tax was collected from the programme.

**Solution:**

Given, 250 tickets of ₹400 and 500 tickets of ₹100 were sold in an entertainment programme.

The entertainment tax is 40% on tickets of ₹400 and 20% on tickets of ₹100.

We have to find the entertainment tax collected from the programme.

(i) considering 250 tickets of ₹400,

Total cost on selling 250 tickets = ₹400 × 250 = ₹100000

Entertainment tax = 40% of ₹100000

= (40/100) ×100000

= 40 × 1000

= ₹40000

(ii) considering 500 tickets of ₹100,

Total cost on selling 500 tickets = ₹100 × 500 = ₹50000

Entertainment tax = 20% of 50000

= (20/100) × 50000

= 20 × 500

= ₹10000

Total entertainment tax = 40000 + 10000

= ₹50,000

Therefore, the required amount is ₹50,000.
