    Answer:

    380 seats  total
    .

    Step-by-step explanation:

    286 + 18 = 304 AKA four-fifths of the seats.  since 304 seats is 80% of the total seats then if you divide it by 80 then multiply it by 100  

    304/80=3.8

    3.8×100=380

    which means that 1/5 of the seats would be 76 because if you multiply it by 4:

    76×4=304

    which is 4/5 of the seats

    Answer:

    there are 380 seats in total

    Step-by-step explanation:

    286 + 18 = 304 which is four-fifths of the seat.  since 304 seats is 80% of the total seats then if you divide it by 80 then multiply it by 100 you get 380.

    so one fifth would be 76 seats and if you multiply it by 4 you get 304 which is four fifths of the seat.
