# Math: Story Problem

posted by .

A buffet-style 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
