Answer:3 cars and 4 buses

Step-by-step explanation:Let x = cars

Let y = buses

7 vehicles

x + y = 7

cars hold 5 students and each bus holds 45 students

5x + 45y = 195

Solve using subbstitution

x + y = 7

x = 7 – y

5x + 45y = 195

5(7 – y) + 45y = 195

35 – 5y + 45y = 195

35 + 40y = 195

-35 -35

40y = 160

y = 4 (buses)

x + y = 7

x + 4 = 7

x = 3 (cars)
