At the mall 5 out of every 25 shoppers were wearing a dress. Based on this information, if 700 shoppers were at the mall, how many of the shoppers could be expected to be wearing a dress?

simply use the rule of 3.

Ok so since you have this information "At the mall 5 out of every 25 shoppers were wearing a dress. Based on this information"

Do you have any idea how you could figure this out ?

@thatboiray17 ?

And plus you have this on the wrong subject

Please Put This On The Right Subject @thaboiray17

5 out of 25 would be 20%.

No. We don't do it that way. Let me show you.

so, i think we multiply 20 by something.

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @Trickjoker 5 out of 25 would be 20%. \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) no you dont do nothing with percents

All you do is divide

ok one way to do it is this. 5 out of 25 is equal to 1 out of 5. Then we take that and set it equal to x out of 700. Then, 5 times what is 700. (do 700/5). |dw:1614803909215:dw|

the answer you get here, multiply it by 1 to get your "x" value. Or, you could just do: |dw:1614804082965:dw| then you would do \[700\div25\] take that answer and multiply it by 5 to get the "x" value. You get the same either way. Good luck ! (:
