**Amy~**, Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 4:33pmWould you know how to get the answer 600 because I solved it differently and did not get 600

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 4:35pmHere's what I did.

154 - 88 = 66

0.11x = 66

x = 600

**Amy~**, Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 4:38pmI thought I had cross multiply.

88/154 = .11/x

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 4:41pmYour fractions for the proportion are not equivalent.

Do you understand what I did?
