one way to isolate x is multiply both sides by 100 --> (7/17) * 100 = x / 100 * 100. therefore the left side is (7/17)*100 = x

so you do cross multiplication? wait. we have to do persentages of our class 7 girls and 10 guys for A total of 17 so how do i do that?

ok, so you can solve for 7/17. that would yield a decimal once you do the division. once you have the decimal, you then multiply that value by 100 to obtain the percentage

7/17 = .411767....

  • anonymous
okay i got the .411764706

you can see that 7/17 + 10/17 = 17/17 which is 1. which would be 100%. Here we look at 7/17 which is .411767, which is 41.1767%. you see that multiplying .411767 by 100 moves the decimal point to the right
