Answer:

A team of #5# equally qualified students should be able to solve #11# problems.

Explanation:

#4# students can solve #9# problems in #30m#.
#5# students can solve #x# problems in #30m#.

Then in the same #30m#: #4/9=5/x to and4x = 45#

So: #x=45/4=11 1/4#

But we know that #1/4# of a math question would be outrageous.

So the answer to this math question is #11#.
