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?

$52$ students were in each bus.

Explanation:

$9 x + 4 = 472$
So you would subtract $4$ from both sides and get:
$9 x = 468$
Finally, you would divide both sides by $9$ and get $52$ students on each bus
