    0.01/100 = 0.0001 x 1000 = 0.1lb

    if 100 samples ---> 0.01 lbs then 1000 samples ---> x? cross multiply and solve for x ^_^

    100x = 1000(0.01) x = 1000(0.01)/100 ^_^

    100x=0.01. Therefore, x=0.01/100=0.0001 so x * 1000 = 0.1lb

    0.01 x 1000 then divide by 100 ^_^

    it says the weight of 1000 samples is one pound. to find the weight of 1 sample we divide 1 by 1000. ---> weight of 1 sample = 1 divided by 1000= 0.0001 The weight of 10 samples is 10 times this amount. weight of 10 samples = 10xweight of one sample ___> 10x0.0001=0.01 pound.

    do it the same way I solved the previous question: if 1000 drops --->10fl 10 drops -----> x? cross multiply and solve for x ^_^ try

    lol no, cross multiply and you'll get: 1000x = 10(10) x = 100/1000 x = 0.1 ^_^

    draw an X between them and you'll get 10(10) = (1000)x

    to solve for x, you have : 1000x = 100 right? now get x alone and we do that by dividing both sides by 1000 x = 100/1000 :)
