well i know that proportion is showing 2 equal ratios

Use what I taught you.

  • Hero
Katrina taught somebody something?
anonymous
  • anonymous
75 of n=66 75x66=n
anonymous
  • anonymous
I find Katrina very clear
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Come on star, break this down as I taught you too.
Hero
  • Hero
is/of = %/100 66/x = 75/100
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm.. 66/75 = 0.88 0.88 * 100 = 88
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
75% converts to?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
.75
anonymous
  • anonymous
Guys wait you are all confusing star
Hero
  • Hero
66/x = 3/4
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
I guess Hero wants to explain. He shall assist you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Did I explain it properly?
Hero
  • Hero
Don't look at anyone else's steps, just look at mine :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
, 75 and 66 is .66 so
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
66 remains 66 because it is not 66%. If it was a percentage, then you will use the decimal.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
Hero
  • Hero
It says to use a proportion. I provided the proper set up for this.
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Well then, provide the steps and help her.
Hero
  • Hero
I did
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait can u write all the steps down so i can write it down and study it
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i can memorize
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Don't memorize Mathematics. Comprehend it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well teach me hero
anonymous
  • anonymous
Katrina is correct =)

The question asks: 75% of what number is 66? is/of = %/100 66/x = 75/100 66/x = 3/4 3*x = 66*4 3x = 264 x = 264/3 x = 88 Therefore, 75% of 88 is 66 Pippa, this truly is the proper solution given what is asked of the original question. Proportion is an equation with the form: a/b = c/d

24 is 96% of what number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
go
Hero
  • Hero
I'm going to bed. I'm not doing this again, lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
pippa can u explan it step by step?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Star, try first.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok well 24n=96% and 96/n=24 so 96/24=4and244=96% so the answer is 6% of 96%
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correction 24 is 6% of 96%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Star...
anonymous
  • anonymous
wat is it wrong agian?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
24 is 96% of what number? What is your expression here?
anonymous
  • anonymous
24 is n of 96
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought i was right!!??
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
96% converts to what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
.96
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Good, so now your eequation is: 24 is n of .96
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
"Is" converts to?
anonymous
  • anonymous
um =
anonymous
  • anonymous
%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Great. Now our equation is: 24 = n of .96
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
What does "of" convert to?
anonymous
  • anonymous
%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
What does OF convert to Star?
anonymous
  • anonymous
%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
"OF" does NOT convert to a percentage sign!!!
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Scroll up, view and refer to your past questions and my explanations on them!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
x
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Multiplication. Now our eqaution is??
anonymous
  • anonymous
no i put x in cuz i meant mutliplycation i did not know how to put it
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Now, we found all our components. Our equation is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
our equation is 24=n *.96
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think thats times
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Yay! Good!
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Now lets solve. 24 = n x .96 The "n x .96" can be easily written as ".96n" Do you understand why?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes cuz when there togeter like that it is *(multiplycation)
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Good!! So our final equation is: 24 = .96n How can we get "n" alone?
anonymous
  • anonymous
24 is 48% of 96%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Answer my question..the answer you got is inaccurate.
anonymous
  • anonymous
wat do u mean?
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
24 = .96n Our goal is to get "n" alone. To do so, we have to divide .96 from both sides When we do so, we get: 24/.96 = .96n/.96 .96n / .96 gives us simply "n" 24/.96 give us?
anonymous
  • anonymous
n=50%
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
24 divided by .96 is???
anonymous
  • anonymous
25
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Do you understand how to do this whole thing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea just about thank u
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
Anytime =)
KatrinaKaif
  • KatrinaKaif
25 is correct by the by
