Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, 1/3 of the posters were not originally posted. Then, 1/5 of the remaining 1/3 were not posted. So, 1/5 of 1/3 is 1/15. 45/15 = 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Again 75 total and 1/5 gave their speech > 75 * 1/5 = 15 60 were left (75  15) 60 and 1/3 gave their speech > 60 * 1/3 = 20 40 left (60  20)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/5 of them were omitted the first time. 1/3 of the 1/5 then gave speeches. 1/5 of 1/3 is 1/15, again. 75/15 = 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She needs more than to just be told the answer. 1/3 of the 90 houses were sold, leaving 60. 1/6 of the 60 were sold, leaving 50. That's how Chad got his answer.
