Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

Society C ;

Population = 100

Number of facts known = 10

Average fact known per person = known fact / population = 10 / 100 = 0.1

Society D:

Population = 19

Common fact = 5

Specialized fact = 5 * 10 = 50

Total facts = 55

Average fact known per person = 55 / 19 = 2.8947368 fact per person

Number of times society D is better :

2.8947368 / 0.1 = 28.947 times

Approximately 29 times
