Hi,need help with this.

There are some theatres in a cinema complex. The average number of seats in a theatre is 224. 40 seats were removed and the average number of seats in a theatre becomes 219. How many theatres are there in the cinema complex?

Average number of seats removed from each theatre -> 224-219 -> 5

So number of theatres -> 40/5 -> 8.
