how many penguins live at the zoo?

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

0.3x = 15

x = 15 / 0.3

x = 50 <=== total penguin population

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:

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

so 30% of all the penguins is 15
