28 people (guests) including Jeff

#### Explanation:

Since table has two long sides and two ends, you can write down an equation:

$S = \left(2 \cdot 10\right) + \left(2 \cdot 4\right)$ as number of people siting around the table.

$S = 28$

This is the capacity of this table. It can accomodate 28 people.
