Answer:7.2 h

Step-by-step explanation:The time required is inversely proportional to the number of students.

t = k/n or

tn = k

Let t1 and n1 represent last year

and t2 and n2 represent this year. Then

t1n1 = t2n2

Data:

t1 = 9 h; n1 = 12 students

t2 = ?; n2 = 15 students

Calculation:

9 × 12 = t2 × 15

108 = 15t2

t2 = 108/15 =

7.2 h

It will take the students

7.2 hto distribute the flyers.
