anonymous 5 years ago In what year were there 0.5 as many states as today? year states 1792 15 1817 20 1836 25 1848 30 1863 35 1889 40 1896 45 1959 50

1. anonymous

i don't understand the question, clarify

2. anonymous

the table unit shows the number of states in the u.s. at different times in history. There are currently 50 states in the u.s. Use the info to answer the questions

3. anonymous

also what percent of the current number of states had joined the u.s. by the year 1863?

4. anonymous

in your question you mean 1/2 right

5. anonymous

.5 is = to half i guess

6. anonymous

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

7. anonymous

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

8. anonymous

here's a clue 50=2(25)

9. anonymous

do you understand?

10. anonymous

11. anonymous

how did you get 70%

12. anonymous

there are 50 states right

13. anonymous

yes

14. anonymous

so in 1863 there were 35 states, correct

15. anonymous

yes

16. anonymous

35(current)/50(total)

17. anonymous

.7= 70%, right

18. anonymous

yes but how'd u come up with .7

19. anonymous

35(current)/50(total)

20. anonymous

divide 35/50

21. anonymous

okay

22. anonymous

23. anonymous

yes

24. anonymous

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

25. anonymous

26. anonymous

27. anonymous

what year did you get?

28. anonymous

1848, any other problems

29. anonymous

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

30. anonymous

r u in algebra

31. anonymous

32. anonymous

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

33. anonymous

Take the fraction and mulitply by x

34. anonymous

its 30 1848 i think i got it

35. anonymous

good job, that's right any other problems

36. 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?

37. anonymous

which one do you think it is

38. anonymous

100/98

39. anonymous

r u sure

40. anonymous

no or .098

41. anonymous

i divided 98 into 100 and got .98

42. anonymous

43. anonymous

not sure

44. anonymous

45. anonymous

.98

46. anonymous

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

47. 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

48. anonymous

okay i did it backwards

49. anonymous

exactly

50. anonymous

any other

51. anonymous

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

52. anonymous

no

53. 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

54. anonymous

so what is the correct answer

55. anonymous

if i divide 6 into 5 i get 1.5

56. anonymous

i mean 1.2

57. anonymous

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

58. anonymous

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

59. anonymous

try doing the exact opposite

60. anonymous

5 into 6 is .83333333333

61. anonymous

which means the percent is?

62. anonymous

just so you know 5/6 means 5 into six

63. anonymous

i don't know the formula

64. anonymous

what do you mean formula?

65. anonymous

83.3% rounded or 83 1/3% exactly

66. anonymous

100 into .83=120

67. anonymous

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

68. anonymous

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

69. anonymous

if that's wrong im totally confused

70. anonymous

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

71. anonymous

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

72. anonymous

yes

73. anonymous

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

74. anonymous

83

75. anonymous

yessssss

76. anonymous

do you understand how to find percents now

77. anonymous

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

78. 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

79. 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
