Snow Day Extra Credit

Due to the blizzard that kept us home, the roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis failed and the game there will instead be played tonight in Detroit.  Let's do the numbers:

Assume the following:
  • The game in the Metrodome was sold out.
  • 1/8th of everyone who has a ticket for the game in the Metrodome shows up tonight for the game in Ford Field
  • 1/2th of everyone who was at the Lions win over the Packers yesterday also shows up for the game.
  • 1/16th of the total seats in Ford Field are also claimed by people who just want to see a game of NFL football where you don't know who's going to lose.
Compute the percentage of Ford Field seats that will be filled tonight for the square off between the Giants and the Vikings.

Go Vikings!  (because, ya know, we're the Vikings....)


  1. How do you know how many people were at the Lions/Packers game yesterday?

  2. Let's assume that the statidum was at 75% capacity for the game on Sunday. I thought that finding the ticket sales would be a bit easier....

  3. This has nothing to do with this problem, but are our songs due tomorrow in geometry?

  4. All Geo Rocks are due 2nd day we meet this week. So, no.

  5. Is there any exrta credit for today? (dec. 14)
