Answer to Yesterday's Problem: 35 vegetables
About 150 guests were expected for a function, and chairs were arranged in 21 rows with each row having 9 chairs. However, 50 more people turned up for the function than the expected number. How many people were left without chairs?

i think its 89 because 150 people were showing and 50 more people so that would be 200 and there were 21 rows and 9 in each so 20 times 9 is 280 and plus 9 would be 289 and there would be 89 left.

21 row and 9 in each row 50 people and 21 * 9 = 189 people that will come to the thing.
