Does anyone has a solution to this problem?


Solution:


We need to find the answer in fraction, we can assume any value of the members
    • Suppose that there are 5 members in the Chess club.
      o Member in AV club =\(\frac{3}{5}*5 = 3\)
Let x be the number of tickets sold by each member of chess club.
    • Total number of tickets sold by Chess club = \(5*x\)
    • The number of tickets sold by each member of AV club = \(\frac{2}{3}*x\)
      o Total tickets sold by AV club = \(\frac{2}{3}*x*3 = 2x\)
    • Total number of tickets sold = \(5*x+2*x =7*x\)
      o Fraction of tickets sold by AV club member = \(\frac{2x}{7x} = \frac{2}{7}\).
Hence the correct answer is Option A.
