If 1/3 is out sick and 24 are left, then 24 must equal 2/3 of the class.
To find 1/3, halve the value of 2/3.
1/3= (1/2)(24)
1/3 = 12
To find 3/3, add the value of 1/3 and 2/3 together.
12+24=36
Final answer: 36 students

well, if a third of the people in class were sick, then we have to find what a third is. now we know that we have 2/3, and that is 24, so what and what makes 24? 12 + 12 = 24, so therefore, if we continue at this, 24 + 12 = 36
