Let p be the number of people per bench. $6p=1254$ Use mental math to estimate 200 people per bench. Create a table to find the solution for p. $\underline p\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \underline{6p}$ $200\ \ \ \ 1200$ $201\ \ \ \ 1206$ $202\ \ \ \ 1212$ $203\ \ \ \ 1218$ $204\ \ \ \ 1224$ $205\ \ \ \ 1230$ $206\ \ \ \ 1236$ $207\ \ \ \ 1242$ $208\ \ \ \ 1248$ $209\ \ \ \ 1254\longrightarrow$ 209 is the solution
