    No, Ms. Sue I did not.

    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

  • Algebra -

    Try this:

    Let the number of students who do not work be x
    then the number of students who work = 11600-x

    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
