A survey has found that 3/4 of the people in a city own pets. Of those who own pets, 2/3 have cats. What fraction of thsoe surveyed own cats?
You need to find 2/3 of 3/4. Since of means multiply, you need to multiply 2/3 times 3/4. What answer do you get?
i got 72/144 which i simplified to 1/2, but when i reread the question i wasn't so sure of my answer.
Yes. 1/2 is right. And it makes sense :).
thanks for the second opinion!
