The ratio of students to teachers is 40 to 3. How many teachers are there when there are 65 students? ---------------- 40 to 3 is the same as 40x to 3x where 40x = # of students: --- 40x = 65 x = 13/8 ----- Then 3x = 3(13/8) = 39/8 is approximately 5 (approximate # of teachers) ======================= Cheers, Stan H.
