# For a field trip 4 students rode in cars and the rest filled nine buses. How many students were in each bus if 472 students were on the trip?

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 $y = \frac{468}{9}$ where y is the number of people on each bus.

$y = 52$
