I can't quite solve this question.

Of 98 bicycles in a bike rack, 67 are mountain bikes. What fraction of the bicycles are not mountain bikes?

  • Math - Division -

    98 - 67 = 31

    31/98 are not mountain bikes.

  • Math - Division -

    98-67=31 so, 31/91 are mountian bikes
    in english that means this:
    you have 97 bikes
    67 are mountain bikes,yes?
    you want to figure out how many are not mountain bikes, right?
    you simply subtract 67(# of moutain bikes) from 98(total # of bikes)...
    that will tellyou how many bikes are left
    the number of bikes left are mountain bikes

  • Math - Division -

    The 'are' at the beginning and end of that were supposed to be aren't.
