so we want an integer , a positive integer solution
I would start by expressing each as a fraction over 100 and reducing to get closer to finding the least common multiple of the denominators
so total must be divisible by
ENGLISH PEOPLE ENGLISH
tons is right
is anybody good at java programming
In english what he said means?
12 out of 100 is 6 out of 50 or 3 out of 25
WHERE R U GETTING THESE NUMBERS
while 14 out of 100 is 7 out of 50 and can't be reduced any further
percent means out of 100
...so 12% = 12 out of 100 or 12/100 which reduces like a fraction to 6/50 and 3/25
ya so the minimum ammount of people is 10?
ok so we want a number that is divisible by all those denominators
Im not good with m,ath but i can rock your orld with any other subject >.<
So, if you look at all of them, they all can be out of 100, obviously, but there is a smaller number that they all can be out of
can they all be expressed as a whole number out of 25 by reducing like in the process above?
like 12% = 12/100 = 3/25, can they all go to out of 25?
multiply all the denominators
SO MANY WORDS... its like a mathbook
im not sure if they can
I am using "like" and "out of", do you want help or the answer
Help What do you mean by "Like"
so the smallest number sampled possibly is 25*50*25*10*25
We're not on facebook.... lol
tonks, do you concur
no, I think there is a faster way, by noticing what they can reduce to
I DONT SPEAK MATH.... MUST.... FIND.... TANSLATOR.....
i think this is the only way
reduce the fractions to lowest terms, and then find the product of the denominators?
oh theres redundancy
WHAT IS A LOWEST TERM?
like 3/6 = 1/2 , lowest terms
and what's redundancy... IM IN THE 7TH GRADE
You mean shrink them....
so the answer is 50
12% of those surveyed prefer red = 12/100 = 6/50 = 3/25 14% of those surveyed prefer Orange = 7/50 28% of those surveyed prefer purple = 28/100 = 14/50 30% of those surveyed prefer Blue = 30/100 = 15/50 16% of those surveyed prefer green = 16/100 = 8/50 Notice that MOST of them can be expressed as a whole number out of 25, but not ALL of them...
all the denominators go into that, thats the lowest common multipled of 25,50,25,10,25
so then its 50
While ALL of them can be rewritten as a whole number out of 50, so the answer is....
so how do i figure it out? xD
you rub a magic lamp, and say , genie genie please give me answer
if that doesnt work, you can always pay me
Cantor ill give you a medal
MY BRAIN HURTS D:
12% of those surveyed prefer red = 12/100 = 6/50 = 3/25 14% of those surveyed prefer Orange = 7/50 28% of those surveyed prefer purple = 28/100 = 14/50 30% of those surveyed prefer Blue = 30/100 = 15/50 16% of those surveyed prefer green = 16/100 = 8/50 Notice that MOST of them can be expressed as a whole number out of 25, but not ALL of them. While all of them can be rewritten as a fraction with a whole number on top and 50 in the bottom. The top of the fraction is the part and the bottom is the amount that it was "out of".
Good luck, Zelando!
so the smallest number of people is 50?
ok zelando, say you have 12/100 , right ?
12/100 * total must equal to an integer
I have smarticles!
12/100 = 3/25, so we need a number that cancel with the denominator
at the very least
TOnks - you earned yourself a medal and you too can :)
so like 12/100 * 25 works, since you get 12/100 = 3/25 and 3/25 * 25 = 3
ok so far?
Can - its 50 lmao
i know, im building up to that
lol all drematic
zelando, are you good at analytic geometry , i got a tough problem
find an equation of two tangents through a point outside a circle to a given circle
so youre given P(a,b), do you know calculus ?
tonka, are we good?
What's Analytic geometry?
<---- 7th grader
geometry plus xy plane
I know how to find dimater of a circle...
