So 2/3 of her students do NOT walk to school

of those (4/5) take the bus

so (4/5)(2/3) or **8/15 take the bus**

The number of students must be a multiple of 15

In an enlightened board of education she would have 15 students,

in reality she probably has 30 students,

and , in some backwards regions, she could have 45 students.
