slant height = 60^2+80^2 = 10^2
or say 10
now 1000/2 = 500 people per yard
so 500*10 = 50000 seats

Since the figure isnt really clear (the dimension of the base) i am assuming the base to be 80 yards.

1000 people per 2 yards means 500/yard.

Now solving for slant height- remember 6,8,10 triplet. so slant height is 100.

Hence total number of seats=100*500= 50000.

Ans :D

Square root of (80^2+60^2) =100
total slant height = 100yds
1000 people in 2yds
50000 people in 100 yds

We have a 60-80-100 right triangle, so the slant height is 100.

Since the stadium seats 1,000 people per 2 yards of slant height, it seats 100 x 1000/2 = 50 x 1000 = 50,000 people.

Answer: D
