ok so seat 8 at dining table
seat rest at round tables that can seat 4

we know hw many dining tables we have (1) but we don't know how many round tables we have, so subtract

total-number siting at dining table=number sitting at round tables
28-8=20=numbers sittin at round tables

20 sitting at round tables
then find how many tables
20-4-4-4-4-4=0
5 times so 5 tables
