# A cloth having an area of 165 m² is shaped into the form of a conical tent of radius 5 m. How many students can sit in the tent if a student, on an average, occupies 5/7 m² on the ground?

**Solution:**

Given, a cloth having an area of 165 m² is shaped into the form of a conical tent of radius 5 m.

We have to find the number of students that can be seated in the tent if a student on an average occupies 5/7 m² on the ground.

Radius of conical tent = 5 m

Area of base of conical tent = πr²

= (22/7)(5)²

= 22(25)/7

Number of students = area of base of cone / area occupied by one student to sit

= (22(25)/7) / (5/7)

= 22(25)(7) / (5)(7)

= 22(25)/5

= 22(5)

= 110

Therefore, the number of students that can be seated in the tent is 110.
