Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:135 estudents Option C.Step-by-step explanation:We have the total area covered by the students = [tex]40 ^ 2\ yards^2[/tex] and We know that for each area of [tex]8*8 = 8 ^ 2\ feet ^ 2[/tex] there were 24 students. Then we convert yards to feet. We know that 1 yard = 3 feet. So: [tex]40 ^ 2\ yards ^ 2\ *\ \frac{3 ^ 2\ feet ^ 2}{1 ^ 2\ yards ^ 2} = 360\ feet ^ 2[/tex]Now we must divide the covered area between the area occupied by each 24 students and then multiply the result obtained from the division, by the number of students. [tex]= \frac{360\ ft ^ 2}{64\ ft ^ 2}(24\ students)[/tex][tex]= 135\ students[/tex]The correct option is C.
