Members of the computer club voted for their favorite snack. 3 out of 5 people voted for chips. The others voted for pretzels. If 33 people voted for chips, how many fewer people voted for pretzels?

Let  M  be the  total members...so...

 

(3/5)M  = 33

 

M  = 33 (5/3)  =  55

 

Those  that  voted for pretzels  =  55  - 33  =  22       ( 11 fewer  )
