A radio station gave away 21 tickets to listeners, means, tickets were given to employees are $21 \times 4 = 84$.

#### Explanation:

A radio station had 105 tickets to a concert. They gave away 4 times as many tickets to listeners as to employees.

Let a radio station gave away $x$ tickets to listeners, means, tickets were given to employees are $4 x$.

According to given condition,

$x + 4 x = 105$

$5 x = 105$

$x = \frac{105}{5}$

$x = 21$

A radio station gave away 21 tickets to listeners, means, tickets were given to employees are $21 \times 4 = 84$.
