Q:

About 2/25 Of the population of the world lives in North America.Of the population of the world lives in North America It's about 11/250 of the population of the world lives in United States of America what fraction of the population of North America lives in USA?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:[tex]\frac{11}{20}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:Let x is the total population of the world. Therefore, by the condition given the population of North America is [tex]\frac{2x}{25}[/tex] Again it is given that [tex]\frac{11}{250}[/tex] fraction of the world's population lives in the United States of America. Β So, [tex]\frac{11x}{250}[/tex] is the population of USA. Therefore, the fraction of the population of North America that is the population of USA will be [tex]\frac{\frac{11x}{250} }{\frac{2x}{25} } =\frac{11}{20}[/tex] (Answer)
