Answers

The final answer would be 50 penguins look on amara.org
The answer is 50... (:
I think it's 35. I was thinking like since 15×2=30 I said, 30+70=100 so 70÷2=35...
I think it might be wrong 450 pinguins

Let x + 15 = total penguins

15/ (x +15) = .30

15 = .30x + 4.5

.30x  = 10.5

x = 35

Total penguins = 15 + 35 = 50

Double Check

15 / 50 * 100 = 30%  Correct!!!

30% of all the penguins is 15..

0.3x = 15
x = 15 / 0.3
x = 50 <=== total penguin population
30% = 15
1% = 15/30
= 1/2
100% = 100 x 1/2
= 50

there are 50 penguins in the zoo.

Step-by-step explanation:

there is 15 emperor penguins...they make up 30% of all the penguins

so 30% of all the penguins is 15

let x represent all the penguins

turn ur percent to a decimal

0.30x = 15

x = 15 / 0.30

x = 50 < 50 total penguins

Step-by-step explanation:
