## anonymous 5 years ago Physic home work If a metric ton is 1.000x〖10〗^3kg.How many 85 kg people can safely occupy an elevator that can hold a maximum mass of exactly 1 metric ton?

1. anonymous

is it approximately 12 people?

2. anonymous

$\lfloor{\frac{1.0 * 10^3}{85}}\rfloor = 11$

3. anonymous

that's what i got is that right?

Well, you said 12. Since the exact result is roughly 11.76, and you can't have 76/100ths of a person, it has to be 11.
