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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i did but the answer came out totally different
nubeer
  • nubeer
what is the correct answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
621,867 foreign students
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i got 617886.72
nubeer
  • nubeer
hmm maybe solve again.. i am getting the right answer with the equation i wrote.
anonymous
  • anonymous
for which number
anonymous
  • anonymous
u got 621867?
nubeer
  • nubeer
x+0.08x =671,616 1.08x=671,616 divide both sides by 1.08
anonymous
  • anonymous
wth..... i just got the answer but yyyy would u divide i dont get it
nubeer
  • nubeer
bcos u have to find the x.. x is the number of students in 2007
nubeer
  • nubeer
its 1.08x right now.. so to make x alone or isolate divide both sides by 1.08
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhhh ok so its y=p(1+r)
nubeer
  • nubeer
oh mm what is this lol?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats the formula for the problem i used 671616=p(1+.08)
nubeer
