What I did so far was write this:

9/10 = x/300

x=270

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:05pmThat's a good start.

1/6 = x/270

**drwls**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:06pmThe answer depends upon how one defines "regularly". If they mean "at least three times a week", the answer is

(9/10)*(1/6)*300 = 45

**Damon**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:06pm(1/6)(9/10)(300)

= 45

not really a proportion problem

**Alex L.**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:24pmHow do I state this question?

Is it..

- At least 45 employees exercise regularly out of that rate

- Ratio and proportion -
**Damon**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:26pmAbout 45 employees in the company exercise regularly

**Alex L.**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:34pmIt's because of the different rates that confuse me.

**Damon**, Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 6:59pmwell, 9/10 of the 300 want to do it

and (1/6) of that (9/10) actually do it

so 1/6 * 9/10 * 300
