Let the no of students be x 
let the cost of each student be y

so xy = 480 ⇒ y = 480/x

so 8 students didn't arrived , each food would have cost rupees 10 more  (x-8)(y+10)=480

⇒ (x-8)(480/x+10)=480

⇒ x² - 8x - 384 = 0

⇒ x² + 16x - 24x - 320 = 0

⇒ (x - 24)(x + 16) = 0

so x = - 16 or  24 

so number of students can't be negative
so 24 students  ANSWER
2 4 2
