if 12 counters are 3/4 of a set, what is the whole set of counters?

  • math -

    X = whole set.

    3/4 X = 12

    Multiply both sides by 4 and divide both sides by 3.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

  • math -

    If 3/4 of the set is 12

    then 1/4 of the set is 4 (which is 12/3)

    then the whole set is four of those quarters,

    which is 4 times 4

    or 16

  • math -

    Or of course do it PsyDAG's way if you already know the rules of algebra.
