- shadowfiend

Exactly. Do you see something that you can divide evenly into both 55 and 100?

- anonymous

5

- shadowfiend

Right. What is 55 / 5, and what is 100 / 5?

- anonymous

11 and 20

- anonymous

11 over 20

- anonymous

what would be the simplest form of 11 over 20

- shadowfiend

That is the simplest form, unless you can find something that divides evenly into both 11 and 20.

- 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

okay

- anonymous

what about 75% as a fraction in simplest form

- anonymous

75 over 100

- shadowfiend

Right. So what divides evenly into those two?

- anonymous

5

- shadowfiend

Ok, so divide those two by 5 and see what you get.

- anonymous

15 over 20

- shadowfiend

Right. Is there something that divides evenly into those two?

- anonymous

5

- anonymous

so it would be 3 over 4

- shadowfiend

Exactly :)

- anonymous

okay um what about i 140%

- anonymous

sorry did not mean to put i in there

- anonymous

so it would be 1 and 40 over 100 right

- anonymous

and 10 can go into 40 and 100 so i would divide it by that right

- anonymous

so it would be 4 over 10 then i would add the 1 then i would be 1 and 4 over 10

- 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

okay

- 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

Right on :)

- anonymous

okay i think i got a hang of it thank you very much:)

- anonymous

well gtg bye

- shadowfiend

Cool. Good to hear :)

- anonymous

umm sorry but what about 24%

- anonymous

it would equal to 24 over 100 divided by 2

- anonymous

by 4

- shadowfiend

Right.

- anonymous

okay good

- anonymous

6 over 25 is that simplified

- anonymous

never mind

- shadowfiend

It looks like it.

- anonymous

what would dived by to equal 92

- anonymous

what would i divide by to get 92

- shadowfiend

Um. What do you mean? 92 / 100?

- anonymous

yes sorry

- shadowfiend

No problem :) 2 seems like a good fit. Remember all even numbers are divisible by 2.

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

so it would be 42 right

- shadowfiend

92/2 is 46. So you have 46 / 50. Can you divide that again?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

by 2

- shadowfiend

Right. So divide it by 2 again.

- anonymous

so it would be 23 over 25

- shadowfiend

Exactly :)

- anonymous

good

- anonymous

what does 2 divided by 100 equal

- shadowfiend

You can divide both by 2 again, right?

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

shadow

- anonymous

well i have 9 over50 would that be right

- anonymous

divide it by 2 again

- anonymous

which would equal 4 over 25 right

- shadowfiend

Wait, 9 over 50?

- anonymous

oh that is the right answer okay

- shadowfiend

9 is not evenly divisible by 2, only by 3.

- shadowfiend

Right :)

- anonymous

shadow u saw my new question

- anonymous

37 over 100 which would equal 37 over 50 right

- shadowfiend

Hm. What did you divide by to get that?

- anonymous

wait hold on

- anonymous

2

- shadowfiend

You divided 100 by 2, but not 37.

- anonymous

umm it would be 74 / 2 equals 2 right

- anonymous

sorry i meant to say 74 over 100 sorry

- anonymous

so it would equal 37 over 50 right

- shadowfiend

Ok, yeah, in that case that's right.

- anonymous

okay good

- anonymous

what would i multiply by if it was 43 over 100

- shadowfiend

Nothing. That's already as simple as it can get.

- anonymous

so that is simplified as a percent into a fraction

- shadowfiend

Sure.

- anonymous

okay good

- anonymous

how would i write a fraction as a percent like 4 over 5 what would that be as a percent

- 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

20

- 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

Whoops, sorry.

- shadowfiend

Right, so multiply the top and bottom by 5 and you get?

- anonymous

20 over 100

- shadowfiend

So you have 4/5. If you multiply 4 by 20 you get 20?

- anonymous

80 over 100

- anonymous

3 over 20 what would i multiply that by?

- shadowfiend

What do you need to multiply 20 by to get 100?

- anonymous

so i would multiply that by 5

- shadowfiend

Right, top and bottom.

- anonymous

okay i got 15 over 100

- shadowfiend

Right :)

- anonymous

yay:)
