ok, 24 of the sea creatures are fish, so there are 24 out of 50.
anonymous
  • anonymous

0.48?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sure, right!
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you
anonymous
  • anonymous
now to get the percentage, you multiply by 100, .48*100 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
48?
anonymous
  • anonymous
right, so 48% are fish. so the formula would be: find the fraction, evaluate the fraction to decimal, then multiply by 100, add the % (percent) symbol.

22) which creature represents 8% of the total?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, so 8% = .08 = x/50
anonymous
  • anonymous
40?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not quite, you off by a factor of 10. so x = .08 * 50
anonymous
  • anonymous
16?

  • anonymous
It's also easy to view it as: How many % does 1 creature represent? If 50 = 100%, 25 = 50%
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok

how do i work it out?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Pick whatever style of approach you find is easiest, either the one I gave you, or the one dpflan did. Both are pretty much the same thing though but phrased differently. Think about the answers for a minute or two. Try to figure it out :)

is the ans 16?
anonymous
  • anonymous
If the answer would be 16, there should be a type of creature that actually has that amount represented. Is there?

So no, the answer is not 16, right? Try to figure out a better answer that we can agree on. Go back to our earlier replies and think about it.
