f the employees who work at Stalling Printing, 90% attended the safety procedures meeting. If 63 employees attended the meeting, how many employees work at Stalling Printing?

2 Answer

  • 0.9x=63

    x (# employees) = 70
  • Becaues 63 employees is 90% of the total amount, we can set up this equation because 90% is the same as 0.9.  I am setting the total amount of employees equal to x.

    x*0.9 = 63

    Now, we solve for x.  We do this by dividing both sides by 0.9.

    x = 70

    So, there is a total of 70 employees at Stalling Printing.
