In a chess club, 75% of the members are boys. Of these boys, 8% have hazel eyes. If 6 boys have hazel eyes, how many people are in the chess club

6 / .08  =    75  boys

 

75 / .75   =  100  members

Well done CPhill! Here is another way to do it:

 

 x is the number of members total

 

8% * 75% * x = 6

 

0.06x = 6

 

6x = 600

 

x = 100

 

8% * 75 = 0.08 * 75 = 6

 

100 members
