March Mathness: Comparing University Sizes

Here’s a math problem for all grades 4 and up.

The size of the university does not seem to be a factor in this year’s tournament.  Ohio State is one of the largest universities in the country with 44,000 undergraduates attending.  Yet, they were beat in the first round by Dayton University which has about 8,000 undergraduates.  Dayton went to beat Syracuse and proceed to the Sweet Sixteen.

A. 3 times more

B. 6 times more
