2. Cross multiply and solve for x.

20/30 : x/36

Or --
Since she stopped 2/3 of the shots one week, she must have stopped 2/3 of the shots the next week.

4. Your question asks how many shots did Marcia stop. You only need one number.

10. I suggest that after this when you post a question, you also include what you think is the answer. Then we can check you and explain if necessary.

11. its just at school for questions i can't ask for help, im fine with homework and all because ur here to explain but i don't have anyone right by my side for the tests. On the math tests the questions are really weird and stuff that wasn't even in our textbooks.

write in proportion
20/30=X/36
cross multiply
20/30=24/36
