    Assume 9000 tickets are sold. If x is the number of $23 tickets sold, then (9000 - x) is the number of $28 tickets sold. Set the sum of the revenue from the two different ticket prices equal to the desired return and solve for x.

    23x + 28(9000 - x) = 212,000

    23x + 252,000 - 28x = 212,000

    -5x = -40,000

    x = 8,000

    Number of $23 tickets to sell = 8,000

    Number of $28 tickets to sell = (9,000 - 8,000) = 1,000

    Check:

    return = (8,000 x $23) + (1,000 x $28) = $212,000
