A theater has 500 seats. Three fourths of the seats are filled. How many seats are filled?


  1. Answer:
    375 seats are filled.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The first step is to convert three fourths into a decimal.
    In order to do so, I need to divide the numerator and the denominator.
    3 ÷ 4 = 0.75
    Now we need to multiply 0.75 by 500 beacause 0.75 were the number of seats filled and 500 was the number of seats.
    0.75 x 500 = 375
    So 375 seats are filled.
