    495 students in 7th grade do not ride a car to school

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1: Find the percentage of number of students in 7th grade who ride in a car to school in the sample.

    Number of students walking or riding a bike = 8

    Number of students who ride a car = 15

    Number of students who take the bus = 25

    Total students in the sample = 48

    ⇒ Percentage of students who rides a car in the sample = 15/48 * 100 = 31.25%

    Step 2: Find the equivalent number of students who ride a car in the total number of students.

    Total number of students = 720

    Number of students who ride a car = 31.25/100 * 720

    = 225

    Step 3: Find the number of students who do not ride a car to school.

    Number of students who do not ride a car to school = 720 - 225 = 495
