The initial question for this online activity asks students to determine if showing movies makes money for theater owners. Given information about box office receipts, the percentage of receipts that theater owners pay to movie distributors, and overhead costs, students answer the question by making calculations and organizing information in a suggested table. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. In related questions, students are given additional information and asked to determine other issues related to profit and loss calculations for theaters. Links to movie industry sources are included with the activity. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
