    Answer:

    16 students

    Step-by-step explanation:

    144 students enter a spelling bee contest.

    Step 1

    For the semi final round we are told that only 1/6 of the group will make it into that round.

    This is calculated as

    1/6 × 144/students = 24 students.

    This means that only 24 students would make it into the semi final rounds.

    Step 2

    We are also told in the question that only 2/3 of THAT group would make it into the final round.

    ” THAT” group been referred to in the question means the number students that made it to the semi final round

    This is calculated as

    2/3 of that group( the group that made it to the semi finals)

    = 2/3 × 24 students

    = 16 students.

    Therefore, the number of students that will enter the final round of the spelling bee is 16 students.
