Lets start by determining how many cars were there. If the parking lot was 3/4 full, and it hold 1,000 vehicles. there were  (3/4)(1,000) = 750 vehicles.  If 200 were cars, then there were  750 - 200 = 550 trucks ← SOLUTION  * Note that the 2/5 spaces for cars datum is not needed for the solution. Hope this helped!
