(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1/4 of all the juniors and 2/3 of all the seniors are going on a trip. If there are 2/3 as many juniors as seniors, what fraction of the students are not going on the trip?

2. Relevant equations

Simple fraction based equations.

3. The attempt at a solution

Not Going to Trip = 1/4Juniors(J) + 2/3Seniors(S)

I am not able to solve it completely because I cant understand what is meant by "2/3 as many juniors as seniors". I think that J=2/3S.

Some body please guide me.

Zulfi.
