Well you have to estimate.
Pretend each guy takes 5 minutes
so go 5x300=1500 minutes
1500=60=25
about 25 hours to wait in line if your 300

Is that realistic?? 5 minutes a person might be a bit long. There might be more ticket sale windows open so more people could be serviced at the same time.

Thanks for doing the question. Stay tuned for more.

1. Estimation depend on the average service time at the counter.
2. Howmany people in the line have left (did not want to watch the concert)?
3. Has the "ticket issue" already started ? or what is the current number in the queue?
4. Whether all the numbers are serviced by only one counter or more than one counter?
