Mika's rosebush had 24 blooms in the first week of May. This was 80% as many blooms as Tammy's rosebush had during the same period. How many blooms did Tammy's rosebush have?

tammy's rosebush has 30 blooms.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the number of blooms that tammy's rosebush have.

Mika's rosebush had 24 blooms in the first week of may. This was 80% as many blooms as tammy's rosebush had during the same period. This means that

24 = 80% of x

24 = 80/100 × x = 0.8 × x = 0.8x

Dividing the left hand side and the right hand side of the equation by 0.8x, it becomes

24/0.8 = 0.8x/0.8

x = 30

Hello! 80%x=24, so 4/5 of x=24. 24/4=6, and 6 times 5=30! your final answer will be 30.

Tammy has 30 rose bushes hope this helped 🙂
