and there are 12 all up?

- anonymous

yes they are equal and yes there is 12 in total

- anonymous

ok so there are 12 and umm is that white line just to show were the border is?

- anonymous

yeah i had to draw it so you can see it wasnt together

- anonymous

ok so half of 12 is 6 right?

- anonymous

so it can't be the 50%

- anonymous

if you double the 1/3% then it's 2/6 and that's less than half

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

so it has to be 2/3% because that's the only one left

- anonymous

but that isnt one of the multiple choices

- anonymous

b? it says 41 2/3%

- anonymous

but how do you get 43

- anonymous

i mean 41

- anonymous

aren't the options, 3 1/3%
41 2/3%
50%
58 1/3%

- anonymous

Arada you don't work out this sort of question by eliminating options.... You say 5/12 = 0.41666666...... = 41 + 2/3 ..

- anonymous

41+2/3% *

- anonymous

i hate maths. i always get it wrong

- anonymous

OHH WOW

- anonymous

I love Maths; I never get it wrong.

- anonymous

MICHAEL can you help me

- anonymous

that's because you made your name Newton

- anonymous

It depends what you want help with...

- anonymous

on this question

- anonymous

I just told you the answer to this question...
There are 12 squares. 5 are shaded. 5/12 = 0.4166666 = 41+2/3%

- anonymous

can i ask a question Newton? why did you do 5/12? the shaded area is 7 squares so wouldn't it be 7/12?

- anonymous

there are 7 shaded

- anonymous

hahah you got it wrong! you are not always right then

- anonymous

so it is 58 and 1/3

- anonymous

so 7/12=0.583333333

- anonymous

so yea i guess so

- anonymous

Hahahah I got it wrong... but I study Mathematics at Cambridge, the best University in the world. Now go flutter yourself, Arada.

- anonymous

awwww i lost a fan! :( oh well

- anonymous

sorry, i'm only in grade 11.

- anonymous

You're american?

- anonymous

newton you actually did it right

- anonymous

na australian

- anonymous

becuase it is hard to see the picture right it does not look like 7 and i used the sampe process you used

- anonymous

yea he got it right if there were 5. the process was completely correct

- anonymous

¬_¬

- anonymous

- anonymous
