# During the orientation for the new students, 289 students were present. Of these, 109 were not first year students. If 2/3 of the first year students were female, how many male first year students were there?

Kindly check the question. Because when I multiply 2/3 by 109 first year students. I get a decimal answer. That supposed to be a whole number because were talking about people. The answer must a whole number.

The question is right Ms. Noimeballeser91. You need not multiply 109 by 2/3 because 109 is the number of students that are NOT first year students. :)
