    60% less means september's rain was 40% of october's. 40% as a fraction is 2/5. Multiply the October number by 2/5

    yes, so turn 67/20 into a mixed number. What's the closest number to 67 that 20 divides into?

    20 is the denominator. 20* 1 = 20 20*2 = 40 20*3 = 60 20*4 = 80 67 is between 60 and 80, so the whole number part is 3. Basically if you divide 67 by 20 you would get 3 with a remainder of 7.

    \[\frac{ 67 }{ 20 }=3\frac{ 7 }{ 20 }\]
