Hello Guest,

 

it's me again, Straight, The answer is 9996. In the Orange party there are 11424 votes and then "which was seven eightshs of the Blue party vote that means \(\frac{7}{8}\) \( {of\ the\ Orange\ party}={Blue\ party}\). You know there are 11424 votes for the Orange party so: \(\frac{7}{8}\)\(*\ 11424\ votes\) and that's 9996 votes.

 

So I think my answer is correct.

11,424 was 7/8 of Blue party. 

 

Substitute the = sign for the word was.  

 

(7/8) • Blue = 11,424  

 

Divide both sides by 7/8  

 

Divide by a fraction means multiply by the inverse of that fraction.  

 

Blue = (8/7) • 11,424  

 

Blue = 13,056  

.

Hello Guest,

 

why you had multiply 11424 by 8/7? I thought you would do it with 7/8.
