I'm in 7th grade and we had this on my homework for tonight. At first I was confused but don't worry just take it one step at a time. My math teacher said work opposite and divide 20/30% but you get 66.67 which isn't a choice.. The only choice that is left is 28.57 but I'll post how they got the answer tomorrow❤️
