school buses that hold 68 people will be used to transport 377 students and 65 teachers.

write and slove an equation to find the number of buses they needed.

Let x = the number of buses needed

Then, x = total number of people/number of people per bus

Therefore, x = (377 + 65)/68 = 442/68 = 6.5

But you can't have half of a bus

So, they will need 7 buses
