Solution(By Apex Team)


Let the attendance on the three days be 2x, 5x and 13x respectively. Then, total charges = Rs. (15 × 2x + 7.50 × 5x + 2.50 × 13x) = Rs. (30x + 37.5x + 32.5x) = Rs. 100x ∴ Average change per person $\begin{array}{l}=\text{ Rs. }\left(\Large\frac{100x}{2x+5x+13x}\right)\\ =\text{ Rs. }5\end{array}$
