in your question you mean 1/2 right

- anonymous

.5 is = to half i guess

- anonymous

if there are 35 states at 1863 then 70% of the states had joind by 1863

- anonymous

if there are 50 states what year equals 50=2x

- anonymous

here's a clue 50=2(25)

- anonymous

do you understand?

- anonymous

the answer is 1836

- anonymous

how did you get 70%

- anonymous

there are 50 states right

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

so in 1863 there were 35 states, correct

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

35(current)/50(total)

- anonymous

.7= 70%, right

- anonymous

yes but how'd u come up with .7

- anonymous

35(current)/50(total)

- anonymous

divide 35/50

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

is there any other help you need

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

in what year were there about 2/3 as many states as in 1896?

- anonymous

x=45, answer=(2/3)x

- anonymous

year=answer

- anonymous

what year did you get?

- anonymous

1848, any other problems

- anonymous

i still don't understand what to do with the fration

- anonymous

r u in algebra

- anonymous

6th grade algebra

- anonymous

Wow, I didn't know people took algebra that early

- anonymous

Take the fraction and mulitply by x

- anonymous

its 30 1848 i think i got it

- anonymous

good job, that's right any other problems

- anonymous

yes 2 more please.............which of the following is equivalent to 98%....0.49, 100/98, 0.98, 49/100?
explain how you would write 5/6 as a percent?

- anonymous

which one do you think it is

- anonymous

100/98

- anonymous

r u sure

- anonymous

no or .098

- anonymous

i divided 98 into 100 and got .98

- anonymous

so what is the answer

- anonymous

not sure

- anonymous

you already typed it in

- anonymous

.98

- anonymous

so by dividing 100/98 is the way to get the percent

- anonymous

no, up above you told me that you divided 98 into one-hundred, 100/98 is more that one-hundred you divide 98/100 not 100/98 so the answer is .98

- anonymous

okay i did it backwards

- anonymous

exactly

- anonymous

any other

- anonymous

so 5/6=?%
divide 6 into 5 =1.2

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

percent means per one-hundred percents above one-hundred means error 1.2= 120% you divide the denomintator by the numerator and that is the percent

- anonymous

so what is the correct answer

- anonymous

if i divide 6 into 5 i get 1.5

- anonymous

i mean 1.2

- anonymous

first of all if you devide 6 into 5 you get 1.2

- anonymous

second of all you are doing the opposite of what i'm telling you

- anonymous

try doing the exact opposite

- anonymous

5 into 6 is .83333333333

- anonymous

which means the percent is?

- anonymous

just so you know 5/6 means 5 into six

- anonymous

i don't know the formula

- anonymous

what do you mean formula?

- anonymous

83.3% rounded or 83 1/3% exactly

- anonymous

100 into .83=120

- anonymous

you aren't doing 100 into .83 you are doing 5 into 6

- anonymous

5 into 6 is .83
.83 into 100 is 120

- anonymous

if that's wrong im totally confused

- anonymous

no it's not wrong why do you keep saying .83 into is 120 though that has nothing to do with this problem

- anonymous

the problem says explain how to get 5/6 into a percent right

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

so
step 1: divide 5 into 6
step 2: mulitply by 100
now, what is the answer?

- anonymous

83

- anonymous

yessssss

- anonymous

do you understand how to find percents now

- anonymous

if you need a formula it would be x/y=z z*100=percent

- anonymous

wow it seems so hard yes i do thanks i should be able to finish and get a better grade so once i divide multiply by 100 thanks again

- anonymous

yes i am glad to help I remember taking pre-algebra in seventh grade it was confusing for me to once i took algebra 1 it all started making sense as long as you do the hw and keep up you should do fine if there any more questions i would be glad to help
