B

Step-by-step explanation:

The requirement is 3 chlorine tablets per every 2,000 galloons of water.

The lifeguards added 8 chlorine tablets for 10,000 galloons of water.

To get from 3 tablets to 8 tablets, we multiply by 8/3.

By multiplying 2,000 galloons of water by 8/3, we acquire approximately 5,333 galloons of water.

Since 5,333 is less than 10,000, the Park Pool has less chlorine than the safety standards require.
