Hello,Originally Posted by Sandra14
I presume that you want to know the fraction of a particular television with respect to the total amount of televisions.
The sum of all TV-sets is 42. Therefore you have to calculate:
$\displaystyle \frac{12}{42}=\frac{2}{7}$
$\displaystyle \frac{16}{42}=\frac{8}{21}$
it's the same result as nr. 1.
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{42}=\frac{1}{21}$
I hope that it was this what you are looking for.
