Each sleeping bag and ground mat must be 0.25 metres away from the edge of the tent. How many people can sleep in the tent? people Don't understand what sort of sum it is to work the answer out

Hence if each sleeping bag is occupied by one person, two people can sleep in the tent simultaneously. Obviously, there is no limit to how many people can sleep in the tent consecutively.
