2/5 of total number of student of a school come by car while 1/4 students come by bus to school. all the other students walk to school of which 1/3 walk on

their own and the rest are escorted by their parents. If 224 students come to school walking on their own, how many students study in that school?


Call the total number of students x.

We know that x\frac{2}{5} of number of students come by car while x\frac{1}{4} come by bus and \frac{1}{3} walk alone to school and the rest are escorted by their parents.

We also know that 224 students walk on their own. And it is represented as \frac{1}{3}. This might as well means thatx\frac{1}{3}=224 . We can continue that to find how much is total.


Therefore the total number of students is 732.
