What part of the school population likes basketball,baseball,or football? How much larger is this then the part of the student population that prefers soccer?
Football 3/12
Basketball 4/12
Soccer 3/12
Baseball 2/2

Answer:1/2?
Simplify the fraction if possible

  • Math -

    the first part is just 3/12 + 4/12 + 2/2
    = 3/12 + 4/12 + 12/12= 19/12 of the school.
    The second part is 19/12 - 3/12 = 16/12

  • Math -

    So my answer is wrong?

  • Math -

    Both your answer and Sam's are wrong.

    Assuming that 2/12 (not 2/2) likes baseball --

    What part of the school population likes basketball,baseball,or football?
    9/12 = 3/4

    How much larger is this then the part of the student population that prefers soccer?
    3/12 = 1/4
    It's three times as large.
