A raft is made of 15 logs lashed together. Each is 30.0 cm in diameter and has a length of 7.00 m. How many people (whole number) can the raft hold before they start getting their feet wet, assuming the average person has a mass of 66.0 kg? Do not neglect the weight of the logs. Assume the density of wood is 600 kg/m³.
I tried it two different ways and got 45 and 50 but both answers are incorrect
