The ratio of staff to patients at Lakeview is 8 to 7. If total staff plus patients is 1575 people,
how many staff are at Lakeview?


help me get started on how to solve this

  • math -

    The ratio of staff to patients is 8:7. The total is 1575.

    Add 8+7 = 15, and divide the total by the total of the ratio.

    1575/15 = 105

    Now multiply 103 by 8 to find the number of staff: 840

  • math -

    Let s = # staff
    let p = # patients
    ================
    s/p = 8/7
    s+p= 1575
    ============
    Two equations; two unknowns.
