Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there are 19 students per teacher. Or otherwise we can say that there are 1/19 teachers per student (though its mathematically accurate, its completely absurd ;) ). From that you can find how many teachers we want to teach 399 students

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to show this completely mathamatically, since its given that number of teachers and number of students vary directly, We can say that the number of teachers and number of students are directly propotional, so if no. of teachers are x and number of studnets are y, we can say, \(y = kx\) where k is a constant now we need to find the value of k for that use the data provided that is, its been given that when y = 228, x = 12 after that we can find any value y for the value of x that means after that we can find number of students that are there for a given number of teachers (or even otherway around)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Convert it to a ratio = 12:228. Simplify that, cos BIG NUMBERS divide by 2 is 6:114 rinse and repeat 3:57 Divide by three now 1:19 Divide 399 by 19 = 21 So that's 21 teachers for 399 students.
