Linda did 24 problems out of 25 correctly.In the next test she did twice as many examples correctly but received a mark only half as good.How many problems were there in the second test?

1. Mia

24/25 correct is a 96% score
If she only did half as good then she got
96/2=48% on the second test

She also got twice as many problems correct.
24*2=48

In this problem the number of problem she got correct is also her percentage.

48 divided by what number will give her a score of 48%

2. Reiny

questions in 2nd test --- x

so 48/x = (1/2)(24/25)
48/x = 24/50
24x = 2400
x = 100

There were 100 problems

check:
1st test = 24/25 = 96%
2nd test = 48/100 = 48% , which is 1/2 of 96%
