working with a circle graph divided up into 1/3 woodwind, 1/6 percussion, and 1/2 brass. The marching band has three percussion musicians. How many musicians altogether are in the band?
I think I have to add all of the fractions together and my answer is in simplest form so it would be 12 musicians. Is this correct?

1. (1/6)x = 3

x = 3/(1/6)

x = 3 * 6
