72% of employees bring their children to daycare centers before work. If there are 465 employees, how many do not bring their children to daycare before work ?
72:465 & x:465 is what I started with but I can not get the correct answer.
need help.

Please recheck your numbers.
72% of 465 = 334.8
Since I've never seen 8/10 of a child  I suspect that you've made a mistake in posting this question.

I shorten the question, but the word problem is stated exactly as this  the shaded area of the chart represents the number of Acme employees who bring their children to daycare centers before work.if there are 465 employees at Acme, how many do not bring their children to daycare centers before coming to work.
The shaded area is 72%
