Samuel has a collection of toy cars. his favorites are the 27 red ones which make up 60%, percent of his collection. how many toy cars does samuel have?

33 is the answer I think

He has "x" total, so if "x" is the 100%, and 27 is the 60%, what's "x"?

well [tex]\bf \begin{array}{ccllll} amount&\%\\ \text{\textemdash\textemdash\textemdash}&\text{\textemdash\textemdash\textemdash}\\ x&100\\ 27&60 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{x}{27}=\cfrac{100}{60}[/tex]

solve for "x".

I'm just gonna assume that the question is what's the total number of cars he has/ the other part of his collection

His whole collection has 45 cars in it. I got that by multiplying 60% by 27

the other 40% of his collection is made up of 18 cars

0.60 × collection = 27 cars

collection = 27 cars / 0.60 . . . . divide by the coefficient of the variable

collection = 45 cars

Samuel has 45 cars in his collection.

27/60 = 0.45

0.45 * 100 = 45

Samuel has 45 toy cars

Problema Solution

Samuel has a collection of toy cars. His favorites are the 27 red ones, which make up 60% of his collection. How many toy cars does Samuel have?

Answer provided by our tutors

let x = the number of toy cars that Samuel has

60% of x are 27

0.60*x = 27

by solving we find

x = 45 cars

He has 25 toy cars left

He has 45 toy cars left

set up a proportion. you have 60/100 and 27/x

now you do 27x100=2700 then divide that by 60

with a calculator you get 45

then you can check your answer by saying 60% of 45 and you get 27 Samuel has 45 toy cars in total

Hey! If 27 cars make up 60%, divide that by 6 to get 10% of the answer which is 4.5. Multiply 4.5 by 10 to get 100% which is 45 cars for 100%.

Hope that this helped! If it did, please give me a good rating and mark me brainliest for my hard work. Thanks!
