First write 16.7% as a decimal - 0.167

Then multiply 23,400 * 0.167 = 3807.8

Since you can't have .8 of an employee, the answer is 3807 employees.

**Your answer is incorrect.**

An international company has 23,400

employees in one country. If this represents 16.7%

of the company's employees, how many employees does it have in total?

Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

If 23,400 is 16.7% of the total, we can write 23,400 = T*0.167

Then T = 23,400 / 0.167
