Cumulative Question 6

(6) Jacob has a record of winning 2 boxing matches for every 5 he loses. If he had 49 matches during the last year, how many did he win?

This questioned was changed yesterday in class if no one can remember.

First you must do this:
Favourable Outcome

----------------------- (<-this meaning a fraction line)

Total Possible Outcomes

Out of every 7, Jacob wins 2. So... 2/7

Now we have to find out how many times he's won out of his 49 matches.

7 goes into 49 7 times.

There's your answer.
