Parking Lot Math Problem:

  • Seniors: 585

  • actually graduating: 582

  • tickets per graduate: 14

  • Average number of ticketholders per vehicle arriving at graduation: 3.9

  • (582 x 14)/3.9 = 2089 vehicles

  • Capacity of parking lot: 800

  • Vehicles that won’t fit on graduation day: 1289

  • [(582 x 14)/3.9] – 800 = Get here early
