A website conducted a survey about musical tastes. According to the survey, 3 out of 10 people prefer indie music. The others prefer easy listening music. If 50 people took part in the survey, how many more people prefer easy listening music?

No here is how you do it 3 x 10 = 30

50 - 30 = 20

20 people prefer easy

Sorry...that is incorrect....if you want to do it that way

3/10 prefer indie      3/10 * 50 = 15

50 - 15 = 35 prefer easy

Or 50 ÷ 10 = 5

5 * 3 = 15

15 + 5 = 20

or

3/10 x 50 = 15

50 ÷ 10 = 5

15 + 5 = 20

THE ANSWER IS NOT 20 !!!!!   It is 35    ......something in your question may be incorrect....but as written, easy listeners = 35 .
