Records show that 7% of all college students are foreign students who also smoke. It is also known that 25% of all foreign college students smoke. What percent of the students at this university are foreign?

Let C = number of college students

Let Fs = number of foreign students who smoke

Let F = number of foreign students

Then,

7%C = Fs and 25%F = Fs

Therefore,

7%C = 25%F

.07C = 0.25F

F = .07/0.25C = 0.28C

So, 28% of the students are foreign
