  1. 3.33 cents per show…. the math there is a liiiiil shoddy xD

    Divide by number of days in a month, then divide by numbers of shows a day (not a week).

    10 dollars a month / 30 days a month = 33.33 cents per day
    10 shows a week = 1.43 shows per day
    so 33.3 cents per day / 1.43 shows per day= 23.3 cents per show

    Double check:
    10 shows a week x 4.3 weeks a month = 43 shows a month
    10 dollars a month / 43 shows a month = 23.3 cents per show
