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?

if 7 out of 12 are bored, then 5 out of 12 are not bored.

 

5/12 = x/280

x=116.67

so about 116 people
