Homework Help: Ratio and proportion

Posted by Alex L. on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:02pm.

About 9 out of 10 adults think it is a good idea to exercise regularly. But the ones who think it is a good idea, only 1 in 6 actually exercises at least 3 times a week. At this rate, how many of the 300 employees in our company exercise regularly?

What I did so far was write this:

9/10 = x/300
x=270
