How many of them live on campus?Answer by jojo14344(1512)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Well, as it stated on the problem that 5 for every 10 live in campus, and that is 50% (5/10=1/2=.50=50%). So if there are 5,000 college students, 50% of that= 5,000*.50= 2,500 of them live in campus. Thank you, Jojo
