73 trees can be planted on equal distance and 11 trees would be left over.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Number of trees to be planted = 4245

Number of miles of highway = 58

We need to find Number of trees can be planted in equal distance and number of trees to be left over.

Solution:

Now we can say that;

Number of trees can be planted in equal distance can be calculated by dividing Number of trees to be planted by Number of miles of highway.

framing in equation form we get;

Number of trees can be planted in equal distance = $$\frac{4245}{58} = 73.189$$

$$73\times58 = 4234$$

$$5245-4234 = 11$$

So we can say that.

73 trees can be planted on equal distance and 11 trees would be left over.
