1. Between 75 and 98.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let’s first have a look at the previous data available:

Friday, 27 dunk teachers out of 215 participants (12.5%)

Saturday: 54 dunk teachers out of 417 participants (12.9%)

Sunday: 39 dunk teachers out of 368 participants (10.6%)

So, based on the previous 3 days, she can expect between 10% and 13% will dunk a teacher.

If she has 750 contestants on Monday, the number of winners should then be in the range of 75 (10% of 750) and 98 (13% of 750).
