This Week's POW

This week's problem is pretty straightforward, so I don't think a vodcast is necessary. Staying neat and organized IS necessary, though. The problem is coming home tonight and is due Friday. Here it is, in case you need a copy:

A huge movie multiplex is divided into 12 theaters. There are 270 seats in Theaters 1-5, and there are 150 more seats in each of Theaters 6-10 than in each of Theaters 1-5.  Theaters 11-12 combined have 6 times as many seats as Theater 4.
Question 1: How many seats in all?
Question 2: If the theater sells a ticket for every seat and each ticket is $9, how much will they make?
