help with story problems pleaseeeee??????
where is your story babe
10.) a college brochure claims that 24% of the students attending the college are majoring in business. if there are 420 students at the college who are majoring business, how many students are attending the college????
babe, its simple all you gotta do is (24*420)/100
\[\frac{ 24 }{ 100 }*420\]
Stop the babe stuff too by the way, kinda demeaning.
another example is a% of b is \[\frac{ a }{ 100}*b\]
why your butt is hurt lol
Why can't you address the asker in a polite manner?
Lmao, ok. but yeah... one step. \[420\div .24\]
you say 420/24 but its my life said 24 times 420/100 idk whose right???
There is a decimal point there.
yeah but that doesn't answer the question idk which one of u is right u both told me two different things
\[x\times .24 = 420\] x = total number of students solve for x
if you cant sustain my words i dont care mr. austin ..and i call it this way and girls like it :D by the way babe, answer is , you gotta calculate \[\frac{ 24 }{ 100 }*420\]
did you get it @caitlynmcdaniel
but I got 1750 for answer
10.) a college brochure claims that 24% of the students attending the college are majoring in business. if there are 420 students at the college who are majoring business, how many students are attending the college? There are 420 students MAJORING IN BUSINESS. That means that 420 is a portion of a larger student body. 420 is 24% of the rest of the main student body. So therefore, you have \[mainstudentbody \times 24percent = 420\] 24% = .24 You need to solve for the total number of students attending the college. @itsmylife your method is incorrect. You are finding 24% of the 24%.
oh gotcha sorry for my mistake ....let me correct it
thanks guys... next question
then how do u solve it??? if u messed up @itsmylife????
let's say there are x students then it means 24% of the x is = to 420 \[\frac{ 24 }{ 100}*x=420, x=\frac{ 420*100 }{ 24 }\] babe you can do it now ;)
delete your fb link please :P lol
