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?
... uh ok?
suppose there was x students in 2007-2008 so 8% increase , 8/100 (x) 0.08x so x+0.08x = 671,616 can you find x?
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)
ohh ok .. well i am not familiar with that formula.. but ya ok if that formula works fine then its ok
you are welcome.
