It is given that in section 1 there are 270 spots.
So the remaining is 800-270 =  530.
Let the spots in section 3 be x
section 2 be x+150 (in the question it is given that section                                                                        2 is 150 more than section 3)
x+x+150 = 530
2x+150 = 530
2x = 530-150
2x = 380
x =190
Therefore the number of spots in section 2 = x+150 = 340.
The answer is 340.

Total number of spots in the car parking lot= 800
total spots in section 1= 270
let the number of spots in section 3 be x.
no. of spots in section 2= x+150
a/q         x + (x+150) + 270= 800
=   2x+ 150+ 270= 800
=  2x = 800 - 420
=  x =   380/2
∴ x = 190
so number of spots in section 3= 190
so number of spots in section 2 = 190+150 = 340
( 190 + 340+ 270=  800)
