A buffetstyle restaurant has 18 tables that seat 23 people each. A church group of 401 has rented the restaurant for a banquet. If the pastor of another church, his wife, and their nine children come as invited guests, what is the least number of people can sit at any one table? Please help Ms.Sue and Writeacher.

401 + 11 = 412
412 / 18 = 22.9
