Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes 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 %

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 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?
