**A hungry elf ate 10 of your muffins.**

That was 5/7 of them!

How many are left?

Plz show work thx

**Answer**

Set up a 5/7/10 = 1/x Cross 5/7x = 10 Divide 5/7 to both sides or multiply by its reciprocal, 7/5: x = 10 * 7/5 x = 70/5 x = 14 So there were 14 muffins, now subtract 10 from it to find out how many are left.

14 - 10 = 4 So there are 4 muffins left.
