Statistical data on the average prices of tickets in a theatre in every quarter from 2010 to 2011, and the total share of sold tickets over the same period is depicted in the given charts.
In general, the ticket price is seen increasing and remaining constant despite a small fall in between, while in case of the share of ticket sales, a clear fluctuation is seen.
As per the line graph, the prices of tickets went up sharply between the second and the third quarter of 2010, after remaining constant at £9.25 in the first quarter. From the third quarter of 2010 till the end of 2011, the prices remained at £10.5 despite a minor dip of £0.25 by October, 2011.
