Real life maths - cruise ship

What do you notice? What do you see?

Can you make up some multiplication or division statements?
What about some fractions statements?



Our statements/questions:
If there are 100 crew members in cabins of 2 - they will need 500 cabins. If they share in cabins of 4, they will need 250 cabins.
If the lifeboats fit 150 people, and we can see 20 lifeboats - is that enough for 3,500 people? If not, how many more lifeboats do we hope are hidden away?
Dinner-time - if there are six restaurants, how many people, on average can fit in each one?
