At a math convention, a poll is taken about cable news.  It turns out that 7 out of every 12 people are bored by cable news.  If there are 280 people at the convention who are bored by cable news, then how many people at the convention are not bored by cable news?

I think the answer is 280.

 

280/7 = 40

so its 40*12-40*5 = 280.

7/12 ==58.33% of the people who were bored by cable news.

 

280 / (7/12) ==280  x  12/7 ==480 people at the Math Convention

 

480  -  280 ==200 people who were not bored by cable news.

Are you sure @Guest? I probably made a mistake!
