# Ezra made 70% of the free throws he attempted last basketball season. If Ezra attempted 50 free throws last season, how many did he make?

$35$

#### Explanation:

If Ezra made 70% successful free throws out of $50$, we can make a fraction out of it-

$\frac{7}{10}$

Now let's change the denominator to match the number of free throws, $50$.

?/50

If we multiply the denominator $\left(10\right)$ by $5$ to get $50$, we should multiply the numerator too

$7 \times 5 = 35$

so our final answer is $35$ free throws out of $50$.
