50

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

so evaluate this fraction (24/50) to a decimal

- anonymous

could you help me with other things?

- anonymous

0.48?

- anonymous

sure, right!

- anonymous

thank you

- anonymous

now to get the percentage, you multiply by 100, .48*100 = ?

- anonymous

48?

- 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.

thanks

22) which creature represents 8% of the total?

- anonymous

ok, so 8% = .08 = x/50

- anonymous

40?

- anonymous

not quite, you off by a factor of 10. so x = .08 * 50

- anonymous

16?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

ok

how do i work it out?

- 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 :)

- anonymous

is the ans 16?

- 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.
