You plant 20 marigold seeds and 12 of them grow into flowers that bloom. If you plant 10 more merigolds, predict how many would bloom

Use the ratio 20/12.

\(20 \over 12 \)\(=\)

\(30 \over x\)

Cross multiply, and you'll get \(12x = 20*30\)

\(12x = 600\)

\(x= 600/12 = 20\)

Thus, 20 seeds would bloom.

You plant 20 marigold seeds and 12 of them grow into flowers that bloom. If you plant 10 more ?merigolds, predict how many would bloom?

12 / 20 =60% of the marigolds bloomed.

60% =0.6 x 10 =6 more marigolds expected to bloom.

12 + 6 = 18 expected number of marigolds out of 30 planted.
