1. In a bag full of small balls, 1/4 of these balls are green, 1/8 are blue, 1/12 are yellow and the remaining 26 white. How many balls are blue?

2.In a school 50% of the students are younger than 10, 1/20 are 10 years old and 1/10 are older than 10 but younger than 12, the remaining 70 students are 12 years or older. How many students are 10 years old?

Help would be very much appreciated!~__Hannah__

from the total x (1 - 1/4 - 1/8 - 1/12) x = 26

13/24 x = 26

x = 48 total marbles 1/8 are blue 1/8 * 48 = 6 blue ones

This is a Math Forum....people go here to get help with math problems. It really isn't set up as a place for chatting back and forth, which clutters the site . You should go look for a different forum for chatting with people. G 'Luck !

50% = 1/2

so we are counting 1/2 + 1/20 + 1/10 = 13/20 from the total

( 1 - 13/20 ) x = 70 students

7 /20 x = 70

x = TOTAL students = 70 * 20 /7 = 200 students

1/20 are 10 y/o 1/20 * 200 = 10 students are 10 y/o
