Sixtytwo percent of the students at Kennedy High School are involved in extra curricular activities. If 152 students are not involved in extra curricualr activities, how many students are there at Kennedy High School?

Ms. Sue,
Since 62% are involved, then 38% are not involved.
1.00  0.62 = 0.38
Let x equal the total number of students.
0.38x = 152
x = 400
