Solution

## Let chairs in row be x so number of rows also , x total number of chairs = x * x = x^2 there are 7033 students in school and each student gets chair . some chairs leaves empty so , x^2 > 7033 , such that x^2 is not exceeds than 7033 + 31 = 7064 so finding the square number just below 7064 80^2 = 6400 90^2 = 8100 the number is between 80 and 90 now 85^2 = 7225 so expected number is below 85 83^2 = 688984^2 = 7056 so x^2 = 7056 = 84^2 which is total number of chairs in auditorium so 7056 - 7033 = 23 23 chairs remains empty.
