Question

Someone help! you have 44 text messages in your inbox. How many messages can your cell phone hold? (and inbox is 88% full)

2 Answer

  • We can set up a proportion.

    88% = 0.88

    44/0.88 = x/1

    Cross multiply:

    0.88x = 44

    Divide 0.88 to both sides:

    x = 50

    So your cell phone can hold 50 messages.
  • ratio and proportion 44/x=88/100 cross multiply x= 50 messages
