Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example. What percent is 5 of 25. Since 5 comes right after is, it is over the of portion. Since 25 comes right after of, it goes under the fraction bar. 5/25 = 0.2 Multiply by 100 to get the percent. 20%.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now hw do yu multiply a decimal

Stacey

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Decimals are multiplied like whole numbers, but we have to count the decimal places. For example: 0.5 * 8 5*8 = 40, but 0.5 has one digit after the decimal so we need one digit after the decimal in 40. 0.5 * 8 = 4.0 or 4
