Question: Why first "ng tiket" and later in the the same sentence "sa tiket"?
 
I don't understand the the different uses of "ng" and "sa" here. Can someone with more knowledge make this more clear for me? That would be most appreciated.
 
Mas mataas ang halaga NG tiket sa konsiyerto kaysa SA tiket sa sine.

In the first case, "ng" is serving as the word "of"...
"ang halaga ng tiket" = "the price of the ticket".
 
In the second case, they're using the "kaysa sa" comparison sentence pattern...
Ex:
"Mas mahirap ito kaysa sa iyan."
"Mas matalino siya kaysa sa akin."
"Mas matangkad si Jane kaysa sa kanya."
