Hi,

I have following question:

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?

Trip = 1/4Juniors(J) + 2/3Seniors(S)

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.
