    Step-by-step explanation:

    Answer: 15 people get second prize

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The company’s sales department has 36 people who are awarded prizes based on performance. If the top 1/4 of the sales team get first prize, it means that the number of people that will get the first price is

    1/4 × 36 = 9

    The bottom 1/3 get no prize, the remainder get second prize. It means that the number of people that will get no price is

    1/3 × 36 = 12

    If the remainder get second prize, it means that the number of people that gets the second price is

    36 – (9 + 12 ) = 15
