7/10 of the U.S. population (175,104,000)in 1991 believed saying A to be true. What is the total population? We are trying to find what the whole population total is. They have given us 7/10 or 1755,104,00. How do we get the whole? Thanks.

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, December 14, 2009 at 5:28pm7/10 times an unknown number can be written as (7/10)x

(7/10)x = 175,104,000

Divide 175,104,000 by 7/10

175,104,000 / 7/10 = 175,104,000 * 10/7

1,751,040,000 / 7 = 250,148,571

**Writeacher**, Monday, December 14, 2009 at 5:31pmYou can set up a ratio and cross-multiply:

7/10 = 175104000/x

Cross-multiply and solve for x.
