uuhhh is it ....
Let x = number of seats in Theatre 3
T1 = Theatre 1 = 270 seats
T2 = Theatre 2 = 150 + x
T1 + T2 + T3 = 800 seats
270 + (150 + x) + x = 800
420 + 2x = 800
x = 190
If there are x = 190 seats in theatre 3 and then that means
Theatre 2 has
150 + 190 = 340 seats ??

i remember doing something like this before ..
