# In one survey, 3/4 of those surveyed went to the movies at least once a month. If that were always true, in a town of 243 people, about how many people would go to the movies once a month?

The answer would be 182.25, but you can't have a part of a person, so it would be 182 people after rounding.

#### Explanation:

First, you would divide 243 into 4 parts, since the denominator is 4. You would get 60.75.

Then, you would multiply that by 3, since 3 is the numerator, you would get 182.25.

Finally, as I said you can't have part of a person, so you round and get 182 people, but if it says to round up, then it would be 183 people
