nope no idea
Remember proportion?
so in this case number of staff is proportion to number of student by a ratio of 1:15 so 1 is proportion to 15 as if what is proportion to what? remember number of staff i let it to be x and number of student is given to be 120 so 1:15
x/120=1/15, we get x=8 (teachers) now, 42*3coaches=126 but student+teachers, i.e, 120+8=128
ohh
it is essentially saying if there are 15 student then 1 staff is taking care of them, now there are 120 students, how many staff is needed to take care of those 120 students?
I get it now, thank you :D
So what is it? :D
So this is wat I did 1+15=16 120/16=7.5=8 1x8=8(for staff) + 15x8=120(for students) =128 now for coaches 42x3=126 so its not enough they need 2 more seats
is it right ?
