Given,The Sierra College Conservation Club planted 8760 Douglas Fir seedlings. If $\frac{3}{8}$ of these seedlings are not expected to survive, To find, the number of seedlings that do survive. First find number of seedlings that are not going to survive Multiply 8760 * $\frac{3}{8}$ Write 8760 as $\frac{8760}{1}$ $\frac{8760}{1}$ * $\frac{3}{8}$ = 1095 * 3 = 3285 Now the number of seedlings that do survive = 8760 - 3285 = 5475 seedlings
