Answer:Number of students= 820.64 = 821

Step-by-step explanation:Giving the following information:

Current attendance= 950 students

Number of periods= 3 years

Decrease rate= 5%

To calculate the number of students in attendance in 3 years, we need to use the following formula:Number of students= current attendance*(1+decrease rate)^(-n)Number of students= 950*(1.05^-3)

Number of students= 820.64 = 821
