Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : Rs. 26,400

Calculation:

Let the number of spectators on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday be 2x, 3x, and 5x respectively

Let the price charged on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday be 2y, 3y, and 4y respectively.

⇒ According to the question

⇒ (5X × 4Y) - (3X × 3Y) = 8800

⇒ XY = 800

⇒ Now, the total amount earned on all three days

⇒ (2X × 2Y) + (3X × 3Y) + (5X × 4Y) 

⇒ XY × (4 + 9 + 20) = 33XY = 33 × 800 = 26400

∴ The required result will be 26400.
