Your local library branch has 28 employees and currently provides approximately 48 square feet per employee for a work station. The library just hired 2 new employees. To make room to add these 2 new people, each employee's work station will be reduced to about:

A 44.8 square feet
Compute the current total area occupied by 28 employees: 48 sq. ft. per employee x 28 employees = 1344 square feet Compute the new area allotted per employee, with a total of 30 employees now: $5493_w127_h41.png$ = 44.8 sq. ft. per employee
B 28.8 square feet
C 42.8 square feet
D 30.8 square feet
