In a survey of 624 students, 60% more preferred getting news online to getting news on tv. How many students prefer getting news online.

I started with the equation 1.6x+x=624, but I don't know if this is the right set up or right idea. Any help is appreciated!

• Math -

624 * .6 = ?

• Math -

I am guessing that the question means that 60% prefer online news
0.6 * 624 = 374
