Q: The officers of a High School Senior Class are planning to rent buses and vans for a class trip. Each bus can transport 49 students, requires 2 chaperones, and costs $1,400.00 to rent. Each van can transport 7 students, requires 1 chaperone, and costs $120.00 to rent. Since there are 245 students in the senior class that are eligible to go on the trip, the officers must plan to accommodate at least 245 students. Since only 20 parents have volunteered to serve as chaperones, the officers must plan to use at most 20 chaperones.
How many vehicles of each type should the officers rent in order
