How many foreign students were studying in US colleges and universities during 2007-2008?

x+ 8% of x = 671,616

Solve for x ...
CAN U?

http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct for more information. Thanks.

... uh ok?

i did but the answer came out totally different

what is the correct answer?

621,867 foreign students

but i got 617886.72

hmm maybe solve again.. i am getting the right answer with the equation i wrote.

for which number

u got 621867?

x+0.08x =671,616
1.08x=671,616
divide both sides by 1.08

wth..... i just got the answer but yyyy would u divide i dont get it

bcos u have to find the x.. x is the number of students in 2007

its 1.08x right now.. so to make x alone or isolate divide both sides by 1.08

ohhhh ok so its y=p(1+r)

oh mm what is this lol?

thats the formula for the problem i used
671616=p(1+.08)

thank u

you are welcome.
