i think that's what you're asking?

3. neverforgetvivistee

because when you cross multiply, |dw:1323151450831:dw| x times 100 becomes 100x, 105 times 30,000 becomes 3150000 so now we have 100x=3150000 we can solve like a basic algebra problem. Solve for x by dividing 100 by 3150000 then we get what you asked in your question, 31,500

hi hero

5. neverforgetvivistee

6. Hero

7. neverforgetvivistee

9. kkl

|dw:1323151512287:dw| these are a few of my options

10. Hero

There we go. That's closer to what it should look like

11. Hero

But you should know which one it is just by looking at it.

12. neverforgetvivistee

well i messed up

13. Hero

That's okay vivi. At least you tried

14. neverforgetvivistee

ok, then it's the first one

15. neverforgetvivistee

of what you wrote

16. neverforgetvivistee

because when you cross multiply, they're both equal

17. Hero

But you can figure it out without even cross multiplication

18. kkl

can you please tell me wich one is correct

19. neverforgetvivistee

the first one

20. neverforgetvivistee

105/100 = 31,500/30,000

21. kkl
