If a class has 50 total students and 72 degrees of the circle have been shaded yellow, then how many students chose that color as their favorite?

72 degress of a 360 degree circle are shaded. That equals 1/5. So 1/5 of the 50 students has yellow as their favorite color which makes 1/5*50= 10 students your answer.

 

 

Hope it helps!

We know that 360 degrees is a full circle

 

Since \(\frac{72}{360}\) degrees of the circle's yellow

 

We can simplify that to \(\frac{1}{5}\)

 

One-fifth of the students favorite color is yellow

 

That means that \(10\) students favorite color is yellow

 

Hope this helps!!!
