As is the idea of 10k people on the balcony. Clearly, it should be one person per booth. So for this division problem, 100 people total (in the whole balcony, all the rows) divided by 10 booths per row = 10 total rows. Again, it's poor wording, but that's how they came up with 10 rows. Every booth was filled, with 100 people total, not every booth was filled with 100 people each.<br /><br />Keep up the enjoyable blogs! :)Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
