8 to 1 means for every nine that voted in favor, 8 voted for it and 1 against
anonymous
  • anonymous
8/9 * 90 = 80
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 to 1 gives 8/(8+1) = x/90 and then just solve for x.

  • anonymous
what i mean to say is that for every 9 that VOTED , 8 voted for and 1 voted against
anonymous
  • anonymous
so by the same ratio, if 90 voted, then 80 voted for and 10 voted against
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok @satellite73
anonymous
  • anonymous
8/(8+1) = x/90 simplifies to 8/9 = x/90

and if 45 voted, then 40 voted for it and 5 against etc
anonymous
  • anonymous
which then gives x = (8/9)(90)
