Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 and 1/3 %. that is 3 + .3333333...repeating so you have 3.333333333 %...to convert from % to decimal, divide by 100, therefore 3.3333% / 100 = 0.03333333...repeating....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, this looks similar to 1/3, except there is a 0 before the 3's...so in the same way that multiplying by 10 will "move" the decimal point to the right, this looks like 1/3 has been divided by 10....or multiplied by 1/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0some fraction, call it x, = 3 and 1/3 %.....therefore, (x * 100) = 3 and 1/3 percent, so x = (3 and 1/3) / 100. 3 and 1/3 = 10/3. so (10/3) / 100 = 10/(3 * 100) = 10/(3*10*10)...the 10 in the numerator and one 10 in the denominator cancel out, leaving 1/(3*10) = 1/30...
