Which part of this do you not understand?
Let x = the number of students who do not work full time.
x + 7x = 11,600
8x = 11,600
x = 1,450

Try this:
Let the number of students who do not work be x
then the number of students who work = 11600x
You said:
"There are seven times as many students who work full time as there are students who do not"
or
The number of students who work is 7 times the number of students who don't work > 11600  x = 7x
or 7x + x = 11600
which is the equation that Ms Sue gave you
