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  Sam, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 6:58pm
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

So my answer is wrong?

Math  Ms. Sue, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 7:06pm
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.
