Lets brake this up. So 3/5 doctors want to use X aspirin. There are 2000 doctors. So you do 3 divided by 5 so you know what 3/5 is in decimal form. Then you times 2000 with 0.6 = 1200. So 1200 doctors use brand X aspirin :)

1,200 doctors out of 2,000 used brand X. To get the answer you divide 2,000 by 5, and it gives you 400. You then multiply 400 by 3 and receive the amount of 1,200.
