Hi, Deepak I can give an answer to your question.

Firstly there are few benches in the classroom - we don't know how many are there.

I am assuming the benches as 15 in a classroom.

Then if 4 students sit on each bench, 3 benches are vacant then it is 4x12 = 48 students.

If 3 students sit in each bench, 3x15 = 45 students, 3 students will not be having any seat.

This satisfies the given question.

Hence the answer to the given question is 15 benches & 48 students.
