    Answer:

    The total amount spent during 2003 was $725.78.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    During the 2004 season, New York theater goers bought 11.3 million tickets for a total of $749.0 . Theater goers spent a total of 3.2% more than the year before.

    Now, to find the total amount that was spent during 2003.

    Let the amount spent during 2003 be x.

    The amount spent during 2004 = $749.0.

    As, given theater goers spent a total of 3.2% more than the year before.

    So, we put equation to get the amount spent during 2003:

    x+3.2\%\ of\ x=749

    x+\frac{3.2}{100} \times x=749

    x+\frac{3.2x}{100}=749

    \frac{100x+3.2x}{100} =749

    \frac{103.2x}{100} =749

    Multiplying both sides by 100 we get:

    103.2x=74900

    Dividing both sides by 103.2 we get:

    x=\$725.78

    Therefore, the total amount spent during 2003 was $725.78.
