  1. Hi there!

    I believe your answer is:  

    520 students.

    Here’s why:  

    ⸻⸻⸻⸻

    60% of the 1300 students passed. This means that 40% of the students failed.

    ⸻⸻⸻⸻

    [tex]1300 * 0.4= 520[/tex]

    ⸻⸻⸻⸻

    520 students failed school.

    ⸻⸻⸻⸻

    [tex]\boxed{\text{Another way to find this…}}\\\\\text{Take 60}\% \text{ of 1300:}\\\\1300 * 0.6 = 780\\\\\text{780 students passed school.}\\\\\text{Subtract 780 from 1300:}\\\\1300 – 780 = \boxed{520}[/tex]

    ⸻⸻⸻⸻

    Hope this helps you. I apologize if it’s incorrect.
