Any math moms out there? I need help with a problem.

I am working on a project for work and I need to find out a particular statistic. I found out that the statistic that I am looking for is 2 out of every 20 people. If the population is 93,379. How would I go about finding how many this would be?

  • 2 out of 20 is 10%. 10% of 93,379 is 9337.9 people.

  • That's 10 percent of the people, so it would be the population times 10 percent.
