6 out of every 15 have been in an accident

how many 15's are there in 120? Eight

8 x 6 = 48 of 120 might have been in anaccident

Hey there, Guest!

120 divided by 15 = 8

8 times 5 = 48

\(\frac{48}{120}\) equals 40%

40% of the cars were previously damaged in an accident.

(120 ÷ 15) ÷ 6 = 40%.

Hope this helped! :)
