Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, ok, will start you off, what is 75%?

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0trust me  I know you want to get this done, but it will be much faster to learn it

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, so when you see a %, you can start by thinking how many out of a 100

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if I say 75% of people love fractions, exactly!

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and by definition, 75/100 is 75%

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can follow the same strategy as before

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can either start at 75/100 and reduce

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by reduce I mean you can evenly divide both the top and bottom by the same number

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or you can start at 3/4 and multiply

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so go ahead and try, and I'll check it for you

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but on a conceptual level  75% basically means out of say 100 people, 75 people will do X

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what do i multiply

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, just like last time, you started with 2/3

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and multiplied it by 2/26/6

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can start at 3/4, and multiply by 2/2  6/6

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the reason you can do this, is because 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, 5/5, 6/6, they're all actually equal to 1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and multiplying ANYTHING by 1, gets the same basic thing (hence "equivalent")

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you're really just multiplying by 1 in different but "equivalent" ways

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um so the next one would be 3/4 and 3/3

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm, well, those are not equal to 1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's only equivalent if you multiply the original fraction by 1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 2x1 = 2, 3x1 = 3 etc... anything multiplied by 1 = 1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now fraction wise, the definition of "1" is something divided by itself

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, 5/5....

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those are all equal to 1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and so if you multiple the original fraction by any of those, you'll have an equivalent fraction (since you've just multiplied by 1)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but it may look different, since there are bigger numbers on the top and the bottom

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the first one you did was correct, you multiplied by 2/2

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you want to multiply by 3/3 and on

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i multiply 3/4 and 3/3

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was still stuck on the last question

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are in fact right haha

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and ps, you can check these by plugging them into your calculator

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.075% can also be written as .75

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(move the decimal places two to the left)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so every fraction you give me, if you put it in your calculator and divide, should equal .75

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the next answer is 12/16

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you divide 12 by 16 in your calculator, you will get .75

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it makes a lot of sense once you practice =). and that's when math starts getting fun  once it finally makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now can u help me with 60%

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok sure, and it's important you learn the other side of fractions, reduction

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0meaning you start with a big fraction, and then reduce it to equivalent fractions (make the numbers smaller)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 75%  we said a basic definition of that is 75/100

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as in if 75% of people like football, 75/100 people like football

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is definitely true =)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so let's do this systematically

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.065% is the same thing as .65

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.060% is the same thing as .6

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is the same thing as .6/1

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but that's not even numbers

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but remember what we can do to fractions to get equivalent fractions

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in this case, we want to get rid of the decimal place

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since fractions don't have decimals (in this context)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so let's multiple by 10/10

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which will move each decimal point by one place (since it's one zero in 10)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you know i owe you big time for this

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's ok! I've been there, just learned this last year

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so .6/1 x 10/10 = (.6 x 10)/ (1 x 10)

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we know that 60%  which is the same thing as .6 , actually equals 6/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what year of high school are you in i just started junior year

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use that system to turn *any* % into a fraction

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically multiple by some power of 10, to get rid of the decimals, and you have the equivalent fraction

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we know that 6/10 is one equivalent fraction to .6

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you put it in the calculator, you will see that it's true

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now that you know 60% is 6/10, you can use the same system (multiplying by 1), to get five equivalent fractions

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so as a side note before returning to the question, here are a few more examples:

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.063% = .63/1 . well, we would need to multiple by 100/100 just so .63 doesn't have a decimal

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so .63/1 x 100/100 = 63/100

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now you know that 63% is also .63, but also the fraction 63/100

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyway so back to the question: you now know that 60% = 6/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OMG it my curfiew gotta go lets start a session tomorrow around 5:00!!!!!!!!!

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok =) I'll be around here probably 5 or 6. what timezone lol?

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh I meant, are you west coast or east coast, since your 5pm may be my 8pm

sandra
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I'll be around tomorrow evening too then
