133

= (80/3)(5)
= 133.33

to have the the ratio always greater than 3:80, the max. no. of student is 133.

Ans - 133

There are five teaching assistants.
Now 5/x = 3/80
X(students) = 133.33

Now which is greater than 3/80 ..... 5/133 or 5/134

5/133 is greater than 3/80 not 5/134 hence maximum number of students = 133

I don't understand why it can not be 5/134. Can anybody explain?
