Hello Guest,

 

Thomas has brought 189 small marbles,
his friend Jonas wants 60 marbles,
but he only got 8/48 of the marbles he wanted. How many marbles did Jonas get?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Shorten the fraction \(\frac{8}{48}\) to \(\frac{1}{6}\) .

 

Of the 60 marbles requested, Jonas only got \(\frac{1}{6} \cdot 60=10\) of them.

 

Edit: The method of solution was written in the final sentence.

8/48 * 60 = 10 marbles
