    Answer:

    Bus = 16 Tourists and Taxi = 4 Tourists

    Total = 20 Tourists

    Step-by-step explanation:

    According to the Question,

    • Given, 80% of the tourists in a group took a bus and 20% took a taxi. Thus the Ratio of Tourists Travel by Bus toTaxi is 4x:1x.
    • The bus fare per person is 40% less than the taxi fare per person. And Also Given that the bus fare per person is $3 Thus, The Taxi fare per person would be $5.

    All together they paid $68 for the tour transportation.

    • 4x × 3 + x × 5 = 68
    • 12x × 5x = 68
    • 17x =68
    • x=4

    And, the Ratio of Tourists Travels by Bus toTaxi is 4x:1x . So,the Tourists Travel by Bus to Taxi is 16 and 4 Respectively . Total = 20 Tourists are in the Group.
