work with seats:
If there are n seats at $26, then there are 6000n seats at $40, if the place is sold out.
work with the money  add up how much money is made for each ticket price.
26n + 40(6000n) = 178400
26n + 240000  40n = 178400
14n = 61600
n = 4400
So, there were 4400 $26 seats and 1600 $40 seats 👍
