Miss Vega want to open a new theatre in Coventry, but she is having issues with some of the measurements. Below are the basic measurements you will need to help solve the investigation. I am SO stuck – please help me year 6!!!
I would like everyone to try the first two questions at least... The more that you can complete the better – this is a challenge! There might even be a prize for the first person who completes (showing their working out) all of the questions correctly…
The theatre is 43m long and 27m wide.
The stage is as wide as the theatre and had a total area of 324 metres squared.
The orchestra pit is also as wide as the theatre and had a total area of 81 metres squared.
Miss Vega needs to know how many seats she can fit in the remaining space. Each seat is 50cm long and 50cm wide. There must also be 50cm of space between each row as legroom.
Because of fire safety regulations, there must be an aisle running down the middle of the theatre. This aisle is 3m wide. There must also be an aisle on each side. These are 1m wide.

Miss Vega has the following expenses when putting on a performance:
|Expense||Cost for each performance|
|Publicity (posters, adverts etc.)||£3326.73|
What is the total of expenses for each performance? Add each of the amounts together…
Question 1: How many rows of seats can Miss Vega have in her theatre?
Question 2: How many seats can Miss Vega have in each row?
Question 3: How many seats can Miss Vega have in the whole theatre?
I plan to charge £30 per seat in the first 6 rows, £20 per seat in the next 6 rows and £10 per seat in all the other rows.
Question 4: How much money will Miss Vega make from each performance if the theatre is sold out?
Question 5: Does Miss Vega make a profit or a loss on each performance? How much does she gain/lose?
Good Luck! I cannot wait to see who is going to help me solve my issues quickest!
