5 tables that will seat 30 people.
Maximum peoples attend =62
Thus unseated peoples=62-30=32
No. of tables seating four people needed=32/4=8
So she need more 8 tables seating four people.
Beatriz is in charge of setting up a banquet hall. She has 5 tables that will seat 6 people each.
The number of people that she can seat with 5 tables is 5*6 = 30. The maximum number of people she needs to seat is 62. This leaves 62 - 30 = 32 people.
If she intends to use tables that can seat 4 people, 32 people require 32/4 = 8 tables.
Beatriz requires 8 tables that can seat 4 people.
