a theater has 850 seats,60% of which are in the orchestra. how many seats are not orchestra?

  • algebra - ,

    850 x .60 = 510

    take that number 510 and then
    subtract from the original 850 and you will get your answer


    850-510= ______?

  • algebra - ,

    Note that if you want to find the percentage of a number you have to take the percentage and then divide by 100 then mutiply that by the number you want the percent of.

    example:
    70% of 200
    70% => .70
    .70 x 200= 140

    and to find the number not included here in the 70% then just subtract the number found from the original number
    given, thus:

    200- 140= 60

    Thanks, that was helpful.
