    Let x be the number of students not working full time. So 7x represents the students who work full time, and 1x is the other students. So 7x+x=11600 gives the total amount of students attending the university. Solve for x, which is the students not working full time, and multiply it by 7 to get the amount of students working full time.

    I don't think I can really explain it any better. Maybe reread my post, and see if you can understand where I get stuff from. Eventually you get 7x+x=11600 so 8x=11600 then x=1450 which is the number of students who don't work full time. The problem says 7 times this amount is the number of students working full time, which is 10,150.
