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 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)
