Twelve students half bikes. Half of the bikes ate black and one-sixth are silver. The rest of the bikes are other colors.
How many bikes are black?
silver?
other colors?

I drew twelve bikes, colored six in for the half, colored one for the one-sixth, and the rest I assumed were the other color bikes.
Please just prove my answer right, thanks.

  1. Only the first one is right.

    Black = 12/2 = 6

    Silver = 12/6 ≠ 1

    Other = 12 - 12/6 - 12/2 = ?
