    Absent=Total-showed up ones , 32-32*7/8 so 32-28=4

    7/8 showed up, so 1/8 didn't show up. 1/8*32=4

    wait a second... you sure that you multiply? 4 is smaller than 32 so why wouldn't you divide?

    total is 8/8 and 7/8 were present.so those absent is 8/8-7/8 which is 1/8.so to find those absent just multiply 1/8 by 32
