**Alex L.**, Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 9:47pmA hotel has 408 rooms. 9/17 of these rooms are for non-smokers. How many rooms are for non-smokers?

My answer was maybe 351/17.

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 9:54pmYou haven't given the number of rooms.

Multiply 408 times 9/17

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 9:57pmHint: since 9/17 is a little more than 1/2, you're looking for a number that's a little more than half of 408.

**Alex L.**, Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 10:01pmIs my answer to that 2nd question 221/17? I think I did something wrong.

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 10:11pmWhen you multiply fractions, first multiply the numerators.

408 * 9 = 3672

Then multiply the denominators.

1 * 17 = 17

408 times 9/17 = 3,672/17

Divide:

3,672/17 = 216

Yes! 216 is a little more than half of 408.
