Last week, Marcia played goalkeeper for her hockey team. She stopped 20 out of 30 shots on goalm . This week, marcia faced 36 shots. She stopped shots on goal in the same ratio as the previous week. How many shots did marcia stop?

  • Math -

    last week she stopped 2/3 of the shots. What is 2/3 of 36?

  • Math -

    Cross multiply and solve for x.

    20/30 : x/36

    Or --
    Since she stopped 2/3 of the shots one week, she must have stopped 2/3 of the shots the next week.

    would the answer be 24:36?

    I suggest that after this when you post a question, you also include what you think is the answer. Then we can check you and explain if necessary.

    its just at school for questions i can't ask for help, im fine with homework and all because ur here to explain but i don't have anyone right by my side for the tests. On the math tests the questions are really weird and stuff that wasn't even in our textbooks.
