A crowd of 50,000 fans is expected to attend the homecoming football game. if the typical vendor can serve 1,500 customers per hour and the game will last for four hours, how many vendors are needed to ensure that each fan can be served during the game? (round to the nearest whole number.) a) 9 b) 10 c) 8 d) 1

Accepted Solution

Since every hour, a vendor sells to 1500 customers, we multiply by hours, like this:
1500 * 4 = 6000.
Then we divide 50000/6000, and that would give us 8.33333333, and we round that to the next number which is 9, and that's the answer.
Answer: 9 vendors.
