    is that a typo?

    Oops Sorry.

    Jordan has 4/5 as many DVD's as Joseph. If Jordan has 56 DVD's, then how many does Joseph have ?


    Am I right above here? My answer?

    now it looks better. It'd be better if Jordan had 55, but you are correct up to rounding error.

    Ok so round it up to 45 DVD's right?

  • math 6 -

    Jordan has 4/5 as many DVDs as Joseph means joseph has more DVDs than Jordan. number of joseph's DVDs * 4/5 = 56 so
    number of joseph's DVDs= 56 * 5/4 = 70
