3/5 of workers at a company have enrolled in the 403(b) program. If 24 workers have enrolled in the program, how many workers are employed at this company? We read this as 3/5 of the total workers employed at the company equals 24. Let w be the number of workers. We have the following equation: 3/5w = 24 Run 3/5w = 24 through the search engine, we get w = 40.
