Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, to do this you need to figure out the total number of sea creatures first. how many are there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now to get the percentage, you multiply by 100, .48*100 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not quite, you off by a factor of 10. so x = .08 * 50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's also easy to view it as: How many % does 1 creature represent? If 50 = 100%, 25 = 50%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pick 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 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the answer would be 16, there should be a type of creature that actually has that amount represented. Is there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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.
