225 kids...
. Wow.
. 2 to a parent, I assume...
. Wow. Finite, but if you put em together... that's... a... colossal amount of kids.
. Anyways, back to math.
. Got distracted there.
. Ok, so 3 out of every 5 parents.
. 450 in all.
. We want to see how many groups of 5 parents there are!!
. Divide 450 by 5.
. 90.
. 3 out of 5.
. So, multiply 3 by 90!!
. 270.
. You got it.
. Hope this helps!!
. Any questions, ask away.

Best answer

3/5 =0.6 450 * 0.6 = 270 Or When you divide 450 by 5. 1/5 =90 2/5 = 180 3/5 = 270
