Answer:

52

Explanation:

Let's think this one through.

If 472 students went on the field trip and 4 of those students weren't in the buses, then there were 468 students in nine buses.

If those 468 students are divided evenly into 9 buses that would look something like this mathematically #y = 468/9# where y is the number of people on each bus.

#y = 52#
