of the total number of spectators at a circus show, 1/4 are men, 2/5 of the remaining number of spectators are women. there are 132 women at the circus show. how many children are at the circus show?

  • math - ,

    let the total be x
    (x = men+women+children)

    1/4 of x are men, so (3/4)x is made up women and children
    but (2/5)((3/4)x = 132
    (3/10)x = 132
    3x = 1320
    x = 440

    so the total was 440, of which 110 were men, and 132 were women,
    leaving 198 children

    check my arithmetic and my thinking.
