John is a member of a baseball card collector's club. The number of cards that John has is 60% of the total number of cards that everyone else in the club has. What fraction of the total number of cards of everyone in the club belongs to john?
from the question doesn't it directly give away that 60% is how much john has from total?
60% of what the others have
so 60% is what percent of other's cards while the question ask for both john's and other's combined?
that's my interpretation of the question so that's what it would be
3/8 was right. thank you
you are welcome
