70
percent of them

said that they would attend.

% 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

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

no if you divide 42 by 60 you get 0.7 which means 70 percent of them will come

- haleyright

no qwerty i suck at math :P sorry im already workingas it is physical science

- 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 %

- anonymous

well yah

- ytrewqmiswi

ok @haleyright do it like this-
If i gave u 100 chocolates nd u ate 50 then what % of chocolates did u eat? :)

- haleyright

50

- ytrewqmiswi

ok nd if u ate 20 chocolates out of those 100 then what % did u eat?

- haleyright

srry but wat is your point in this

- ytrewqmiswi

i'll tell but u answer first telling my point at this point of time will not make any sense :)

- haleyright

ok um, 20?

- ytrewqmiswi

can u tell me how did u get that :)

- haleyright

well since u gave me 100 cookies and i ate 50 then there would be 50 left and since i had 100 cookies and i ate 20 its the same thing. will u tell me ure point now :D

- ytrewqmiswi

ok tell if u had 10cookies and u ate 3 then how many cookies wuld u eat if u had 20?

- haleyright

wats the point?

- anonymous

the answer is 70%
to your question Haley

- haleyright

i dont have a question

- haleyright

qwerty?

- anonymous

alll of the cook stuff got nothing to do with your problem that you gave

- anonymous

oh it moonlight

- anonymous

sorry

- 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?

- anonymous

you dont have to multiple by 100

- haleyright

moonlight is the one who asked a question about a math problem so y am i learning right now and not her. im confused and i hate math

- anonymous

because 0.7/1 is 70%

- anonymous

Haley you have any questions

- haleyright

no

- anonymous

okay

- ytrewqmiswi

@haleyright do u want a direct formula to do this kinda questions ?

- haleyright

no, i just dont want to doo math, can we just continue tlkin pleeeease qwerty :P

- anonymous

no,
its so easy to convert a decimal into a percentage

- haleyright

im not asking "u" yinkim thank you

- ytrewqmiswi

lol @haleyright i thought that this is ur question XD hahahahah lol

- anonymous

Proportion: 42/60 = x/100
