Exactly. Do you see something that you can divide evenly into both 55 and 100?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right. What is 55 / 5, and what is 100 / 5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
11 and 20
anonymous
  • anonymous
11 over 20
anonymous
  • anonymous
what would be the simplest form of 11 over 20
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
That is the simplest form, unless you can find something that divides evenly into both 11 and 20.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
(You won't, because 11 is prime, which means that nothing divides evenly into it except for 1 and 11, and 11 does not divide evenly into 20)
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about 75% as a fraction in simplest form
anonymous
  • anonymous
75 over 100
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right. So what divides evenly into those two?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Ok, so divide those two by 5 and see what you get.
anonymous
  • anonymous
15 over 20
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right. Is there something that divides evenly into those two?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be 3 over 4
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Exactly :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay um what about i 140%
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry did not mean to put i in there
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be 1 and 40 over 100 right
anonymous
  • anonymous
and 10 can go into 40 and 100 so i would divide it by that right
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be 4 over 10 then i would add the 1 then i would be 1 and 4 over 10
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right. That's in mixed number form. If you want an improper fraction, then 1 is the same as 10/10, so it would be 14/10.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 175% would be 1 and 75 over 100 and divide that bye 5 which would equal to 1 and 3 over 4 right
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right on :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay i think i got a hang of it thank you very much:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
well gtg bye
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Cool. Good to hear :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm sorry but what about 24%
anonymous
  • anonymous
it would equal to 24 over 100 divided by 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
by 4
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay good
anonymous
  • anonymous
6 over 25 is that simplified
anonymous
  • anonymous
never mind
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
It looks like it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what would dived by to equal 92
anonymous
  • anonymous
what would i divide by to get 92
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Um. What do you mean? 92 / 100?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes sorry
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
No problem :) 2 seems like a good fit. Remember all even numbers are divisible by 2.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be 42 right
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
92/2 is 46. So you have 46 / 50. Can you divide that again?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
by 2
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right. So divide it by 2 again.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be 23 over 25
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Exactly :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
good
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does 2 divided by 100 equal
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
You can divide both by 2 again, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
shadow
anonymous
  • anonymous
well i have 9 over50 would that be right
anonymous
  • anonymous
divide it by 2 again
anonymous
  • anonymous
which would equal 4 over 25 right
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Wait, 9 over 50?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh that is the right answer okay
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
9 is not evenly divisible by 2, only by 3.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
shadow u saw my new question
anonymous
  • anonymous
37 over 100 which would equal 37 over 50 right
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Hm. What did you divide by to get that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait hold on
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
You divided 100 by 2, but not 37.
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm it would be 74 / 2 equals 2 right
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry i meant to say 74 over 100 sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would equal 37 over 50 right
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Ok, yeah, in that case that's right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay good
anonymous
  • anonymous
what would i multiply by if it was 43 over 100
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Nothing. That's already as simple as it can get.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that is simplified as a percent into a fraction
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Sure.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay good
anonymous
  • anonymous
how would i write a fraction as a percent like 4 over 5 what would that be as a percent
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
So the trick here is that you want 5 to turn into 100. What do you have to multiply 5 by to get 100?
anonymous
  • anonymous
20
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
So the trick here is that you want 5 to turn into 100. What do you have to multiply 5 by to get 100?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Whoops, sorry.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right, so multiply the top and bottom by 5 and you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
20 over 100
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
So you have 4/5. If you multiply 4 by 20 you get 20?
anonymous
  • anonymous
80 over 100
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 over 20 what would i multiply that by?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
What do you need to multiply 20 by to get 100?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i would multiply that by 5
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right, top and bottom.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay i got 15 over 100
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Right :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay:)
