On Monday, 237 students went on a trip to the zoo. All 4 buses were filled and 5 students had to travel in cars. How many students were in each bus?

Nov 1, 2016

There were $58$ students in each bus.

Explanation:

Total number of students $= 237$

Number of students who travelled by car $= 5$

$\therefore$ Number of students who travelled by bus $= 237 - 5 = 232$

Presuming the buses to have the same capacity, and knowing that there were four buses, the number of students in each bus can be expressed as:

$x = 232 \div 4$

$x = 58$
