The Big Game – SAT Question of the Day

QOD2015_0623
Explanation
Here we are to find the total amount earned by a football team after selling a certain number of tickets. If for each ticket the team receives $25, and the team sells a ticket to 34,500 people, then the total amount earned will be (25)(34500)=862,500

We can use our calculator to perform the multiplication, or drop the zeros, write out the long multiplication, and add the zeros back onto our result.

The correct answer is (D).
