Explanation: 4% = 4/100 =0.04
Write 15% as a fraction.
Correct answer: 3/20
Explanation:
A fraction is always out of 100, so take the percentage and divide it by 100,,,,,
15% = 15/100 reduces to 3/ 20 = 0.15
Write 33 1/3% as a decimal.
Answer: 0.3333
Explanation:
33 is our whole number, so we won't be doing anything with it, however the fraction 1/3 needs to become a decimal. We can find the decimal by dividing 3 into 1 which goes 0.33 times. So our percentage is 33.33% which when divided by 100, or when we move the decimal place to the left two places we have....
0.3333
Write 2.5 as a percent.
Correct answer: 250%
Explanation: 250%, any time you are asked to turn a number into a percent, just mulitply that number by 100 and put your percentage sign.
25 is what percent of 40?
Answer: 62.5%
Explanation:
This is a word problem; look at the main operating words.
25 is(=) what (x)40 so we have as our proble
25 = x40, now solve for x by dividing both sides of the equation by 40,
25/40 = x, now reduce your fraction...
5/8 , turn this into a decimal and multipy by 100.
=62.5%
50 is what percent of 300?
Correct answer: 17%
Explanation:
Again, here is our operating words, 50 is, or equals, what or x, percent of 300. so we have
50 = x (300),,, now divide both sides by 300 and reduce the fraction
50/300 and then multiply by 100 for a percent.
1/6 (100) = 16%
12 is what percent of 40?
Correct answer: 30%
Explanation:
12 = x40
divde both sides by 40 and you get..
12/40 which reduces to 3/10, turn this into a decimal..=0.3 and multiply this by 100 to get
30%
What is 30% of 70?
Answer: 21
Explanation:
When you are given this type of problem be sure to read the operating words,..
x =0.30 (70), this equation is the translation of the above statement. answer
21
0.5% of $1000 is what?
Answer: 5
Explanation: You must first turn the percentage into a decimal then multiply. so 0.5% implies to divide this by 100 or 0.5/100 = 0.005 (1000) =5
13% of $900.00 is what?
Answer: 117
Explanation:
0.13 (900)= x
= 117
Write 5/8 as a percent
Answer: 62.5%
Explanation: First turn this into a decimal by dividing 8 into 5.= 0.2, then multiply this by 100 = 20
Write 9/11 as a percent.
Answer: 82%
Explanation: Divide 11 into 9 to get 0.818 and multiply this by 100 to get about 81% or 81.8%
12/13 of 40 is what percent?
Answer: 36.9%
Explanation:
The word, "of" idicates the operation of multiplication., therefore change 12/13 into a decimal and multiply,,, 0.92 (40) = 36.9 , now if we divide this by 40 and multiply by 100 we get 92.3%
Sarah traveled 2/7 of her total trip of 400 miles. How far did Sarah travel?
Answer: 114.3miles
Explanation: The operating word is the word "of", so turn 2/7 into a decimal which is 0.285 and multiply this times the number of miles she traveled. 0.285 (400)=114.2, the answer on the test will probably be rounded to the nearest mile which would make it 114 miles
Write 65 5/8 as a decimal.
Answer: 65.625
Explanation: A decimal is always a number smaller than one, so we can leave 65 as it is and just turn the fraction into a decimal., so our decimal becomes 65.625
Write 2 1/5 as a percent.
Correct answer: 220%
Explanation: 2 and 1/5 in decimal form is 2.8, multiply this times 100 and we get 280%
85% of all the students have B's. What is the percentage that do not have B's, if the total number of students is 160.
Correct answer: 15%

John walked ¾ the distance of Bob. If Bob walked 3 ¼ miles, how far did John walk?
Correct answer: 2 and 7/16 of a mile
Explanation:
1. 2 and 7/16 of a mile
2. 3 miles
3. 2.5 miles
Solution;
Take ¾ of 3 ¼. The word "of" means to multiply.
¾(3 ¼)
¾ (13/4)
Numerator multiples numerator and denominator multiples denominator. 39/16
This is an improper fraction which needs to be made into a mixed numeral.
John walked 2 and 7/16 of a mile
Place in order of greatest to least.
3/4, 7/8, 9/11
Correct answer: 7/8, 9/11, 3/4
Explanation:
First try to reduce any to lowest terms. Then find a common denominator for all and convert each fraction to an equivaltent fraction. The common denominator is 352.
264/352, 308/352, 288/352 these would then be ordered from greatest to least.
7/8>9/11>3/4
0.00078/0.00002
Correct answer: 39
Explanation:
Turn the numerator and denominator into a factor of 10.
78 x 10 -5 ÷ 2.0 x10-5
Divide 2 into 78 = 39
Subtract the numerator exponent from the denominator exponent: 10 (-5 -(-5)) = 100 = 1
39x1 =39
10-3
Answer: 0.001
Explanation: The negative 3 indicates that the decimal is going to make the number smaller, so we move three places to the left.
10-7/100
Correct answer: 0.0000001
Explanation: 10(-7-0) = 10-7 = 0.0000001
10,000/104
Correct answer: 1
Explanation:
Use exponents to solve this rather than long division.
104/104= 10(4-4) = 100 =1
0.00045/9
Correct answer: 5 (10-5)
Explanation:
Use powers of 10 for the numerator and then divide.
(45x10-5)/9
45/9 = 5 (10-5)
24,000,000/0.000012
Answer: 2 x 1012
Explanation:
Powers of 10 for both numerator and denominator
24 x 106/12 x 10-6
24/12 = 2
10(6-(-6))=1012
2x1012
(0.000034)-2
Correct answer: 86.5x107
Explanation:
What does the operation ask us to perform?
(0.000034)-1 x (0.000034)-1
Simplify expression in parenthesis:
(34x10-6)-1 x ( 34x10-6)-1 = 34-1x 34-1 x 10-6(-1) x 10-6(-1)= 34-2 x 1012
which is also the same as.......
1/342 = 1/1156 = 8.6505 x 10-4 or 0.00086505
now multiply this times 1012 and we get...
moving the decimal point 12 places to the right.
8.6505 x 108
(0.000068)3
Answer: 3.14x10-13
Explanation:
Simplify the expression in parentheses first;
(68 x 10-6)3
When raising an exponent to any power, multiply that power to each of the items powers in parenthesis.
683x10-18
Any time that there is a negative exponent, it indicates that the item is in the denominator, and the exponent then becomes positive
683/1018
70%
Answer: 0.70
Explanation: Percentages always indicate a part out of 100. Therefore 70% is the same thing as saying 70/100 = 0.70
0.055%
Correct answer: 0.00055
Explanation:
This is out of 100, so we can either perform long division of 0.055/100 or use the factor of 10
55x10-3(10-2)
55x10-5
0.00055
10-2=1/100
0.120
Correct answer: 12%
