0.14 * 0.6 * X = 0.084 * X.

Hence

100*0.084 = 8.4%

percent of the students in the college play baseball.

Then the number of students which play sports is equal to

0.6 * X

Therefore the number of students who play baseball is

0.14 * 0.6 * X = 0.084 * X.

Hence

100*0.084 = 8.4%

percent of the students in the college play baseball.
