Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...so 12% = 12 out of 100 or 12/100 which reduces like a fraction to 6/50 and 3/25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, if you look at all of them, they all can be out of 100, obviously, but there is a smaller number that they all can be out of

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012% of those surveyed prefer red = 12/100 = 6/50 = 3/25 14% of those surveyed prefer Orange = 7/50 28% of those surveyed prefer purple = 28/100 = 14/50 30% of those surveyed prefer Blue = 30/100 = 15/50 16% of those surveyed prefer green = 16/100 = 8/50 Notice that MOST of them can be expressed as a whole number out of 25, but not ALL of them. While all of them can be rewritten as a fraction with a whole number on top and 50 in the bottom. The top of the fraction is the part and the bottom is the amount that it was "out of".
