## Total Number of Percussionists in the Orchestra

The Envision Math workbook provides accelerated Grade 7 solutions for various math problems, including determining the total number of percussionists in an orchestra. In this scenario, if 20% of the orchestra represents 60 percussionists, how many percussionists are there in total?

To solve for the total number of percussionists in the orchestra, we need to convert the percentage into a decimal. 20% is equivalent to 0.2 in decimal form.

Next, we can calculate the total number of percussionists by multiplying the decimal equivalent of 20% (0.2) by the number of percussionists given (60).

0.2 x 60 = 12

Therefore, there are a total of 12 percussionists in the orchestra. This calculation helps us understand the distribution of percussionists in the orchestra based on the percentage provided.
