There will be one fan in the partially full van given that the university needs to transport 817 fans from the stadium parking lot to the football game and a van holds 4 people. This can be obtained by finding the remainder when 817 is divided by 4.

### How many fans will be in the partially full van?

Here in the question it is given that,
• The university needs to transport 817 fans from the stadium parking lot to the football game.
• A van holds 4 people.
We have to find the number of fans in the partially full van.
The number of fans in the partially full van can be obtained by finding the remainder when 817 is divided by 4.
When 817 is divided by 4 we get the quotient 204 and remainder 1.
This is division algorithm form⇒ 817 = (204 × 4) + 1

Hence there will be one fan in the partially full van given that the university needs to transport 817 fans from the stadium parking lot to the football game and a van holds 4 people.
