transport 81 students, requires 3 chaperones, and costs $1,100 to rent. Each van can transport 9 students, requires 1 chaperone, and costs $90 to rent. Since there are 729 students in the senior class that may be eligible to go on the trip, the officers must plan to accommodate at least 729 students.
