    Answer:

    203 students surveryed purple as their favorite color

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s set this up like a fraction

    Percentages are always out of 100 so the denoninator will be 100

    Since the number of students who’s favorite color is equal to 35%, we will equal both fractions together

    Variable x = number of students for purple

    x/580 = 35/100

    Cross multiply

    x × 100 = 580 × 35

    100x = 20,300

    Isolate the variable by dividing both sides by 100

    x = 203

    203 students surveryed purple as their favorite color
