Q:
# At the newest animated movie, for every 9 children, there are 4 adults. There are a total of 39 children and adults at the movie. How many children are at the movie?

Accepted Solution

A:

For every 9 children, there are 4 adults.

If there are 39 children and adults, we can work backwards to find the answer.

Lets start by multiplying 9. Lets do 3. 9 x 3 = 27.

Ok, now we have an estimate of 27 Children, now all we have to do is multiply the number of adults by 3.

Now we can multiply 4 x 3. 4 x 3 = 12. Now we have the number of children and adults.

Now lets add these together. 12 + 27 = 39! Perfect! Now we know that there are 27 children, and 12 adults.

Hope this helps!!
