Answer:

A. 47 reams

Step-by-step explanation:

Total copies counted by the copier = 23,500 copies

Number of sheets in a ream = 500 sheets

How many reams of paper were used?

Number of reams of paper used = Total copies counted by the copier / Number of sheets in a ream

= 23,500 / 500

= 47

Number of reams of paper used = 47 reams
