Answer:7 carsStep-by-step explanation:The computation of the number of cars to be filled is shown below:

A car that is 90% full and the total people is 20 so 90% would be

= (.90)(20)

= 18

A car that is 65% full and the total people is 20 so 65% would be

= (.65)(20)

= 13

Now

Total number of people = (5)(18) + (3)(13).

= 129

Now the number of cars to be filled is

= 129 ÷ 20

= 6.45

=

7 cars
