For every 20 people  19 are students and 1 is a teacher.....or   19/20 are students

A  100  x  19/20 = 95 students

B   etc    etc

 

8 out of 15    ( 7 + 8)    is time in slides

8/15  x  90 minutes =           time spent in slides.....

48 min is correct for the second one

 

First one  :

 

If the ratio of  students  to teachers  is 19 : 1.......then out of 20 people...19 are students....so

 

19 / 20  =  95%  are students  =  .95

 

So......the number of students in each case  [ in red ] is

 

A  =  .95  * 100  =  95

B  =  .95 *  280 =  266

C  = .95 *  440  =  418

D = .95 *  760  =  722

 

 

cool cool cool
