If there are 10% French, that means that $\large \frac{1}{10}$ of everyone is French. So what we're gonna do is multiply our fraction, 1/10 by 500. So $\large \frac{1}{10}*500$ Do you know how to do that?

3. anonymous

yes

4. anonymous

(1/10)*500=50, correct?

5. anonymous

Yes, that would be it. So 50 would be your answer :)
