UNDERSTAND HOW THE CALCULATION IS MADE IN THE FINANCIAL BULLETIN
The calculation to arrive at the number of paying people is done as follows: we add the amount of used tickets available in the game’s bordero that generated income or we subtract the total audience by the used tickets that are zeroed in the collection.
