\[x\times .24 = 420\]
x = total number of students

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%.

- anonymous

oh gotcha sorry for my mistake ....let me correct it

- anonymous

thanks guys... next question

- anonymous

then how do u solve it??? if u messed up @itsmylife????

- anonymous

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 ;)
