    At least 55 tickets must be sold to cover the remaining cost of the party.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total money needed for the party = $350

    The money already with the committee = $75

    Now, the money yet to be collected = Total Party Budget - Money present

    = $350 = $75 = $275

    Now, the cost of 1 ticket = $5

    Let us assume the number of tickets sold to cover the cost of party = m

    ⇒ The cost of m tickets = 5 m

    The renaming cost = Total cost of m tickets

    or, 5 m = $275

    ⇒ m = 275/5 = 55

    or, m = 55

    Hence, at least 55 tickets must be sold to cover the remaining cost of the

    party by Josef.
