## Answers ( )

1. Answer:

a) 420 students

b)Tom could have asked students that weren’t on the football team too. He could have asked more students and from all different areas, not just football.

Step-by-step explanation:

Set up a proportion to solve for the unknown (x)

7/20 = x/1200 then cross multiply to solve for x.

8400=20x then divide by 20 on both sides

x=420
