Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010.) 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%.
