% of people who attend the party= (number of people who come to the party)/(total number of people invited) x 100

or it could be 42/60= percentage
ytrewqmiswi
  • ytrewqmiswi
no that would be fraction of people who attended the party

  • ytrewqmiswi
@haleyright can u put the values in that formula to get the answer :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
no if you divide 42 by 60 you get 0.7 which means 70 percent of them will come
haleyright
  • haleyright
no qwerty i suck at math :P sorry im already workingas it is physical science
ytrewqmiswi
  • ytrewqmiswi
yes u got 0.7 but then u don't say directly that 70% people attended the party u multiply 0.7 by 100 nd then u say that so basically 42/60 gives us the fraction of people who attended the party and multiplying it by 100 gives us the %

ytrewqmiswi
  • ytrewqmiswi
can u tell me how did u get that :)
haleyright
  • haleyright

  • anonymous
sorry
ytrewqmiswi
  • ytrewqmiswi
the point is - u called 60 people and 42 came but here the situation is not like that chocolate one so we'll make it like that so we have- 60ppl--------->42came 1ppl---------->42/60 would come multiply both sides by 100 100ppl-------->42/60 x 100wuld come 100ppl--------->70wuld come so now we calculated the number of ppl who wuld come if 100ppl were invited by using ratio nd proportion things :) so now we have the same situation as we had in the chocolate case :D did u get it?
