A student's tuition was $ 6,272.

A loan was obtained for 6/7 of the tuition.

The amount of loan was $ 5,376.

Just take the tuition and multiply it by 6/7. You may have not gotten to this level of math, but it should be taught when you reach 5th grade.

The simplest thing to do is multiply the whole number (6272) by the numerator (6) and then divide by the denominator (7).

You can actually do it in the other order too. Take the whole number (6272), divide it by the denominator (7) and then multiply by the numerator (6).

When I do that, I get $5376. What do you get?

6272 * (6/7) =>

(6300 - 28) * (6/7) =>

7 * (900 - 4) * (6/7) =>

(900 - 4) * 6 =>

5400 - 24 =>

5376
