Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0, 75 and 66 is .66 so

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.466 remains 66 because it is not 66%. If it was a percentage, then you will use the decimal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says to use a proportion. I provided the proper set up for this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well 24n=96% and 96/n=24 so 96/24=4and244=96% so the answer is 6% of 96%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Good, so now your eequation is: 24 is n of .96

KatrinaKaif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Great. Now our equation is: 24 = n of .96

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Now, we found all our components. Our equation is?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0our equation is 24=n *.96

KatrinaKaif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Now lets solve. 24 = n x .96 The "n x .96" can be easily written as ".96n" Do you understand why?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes cuz when there togeter like that it is *(multiplycation)

KatrinaKaif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Good!! So our final equation is: 24 = .96n How can we get "n" alone?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Answer my question..the answer you got is inaccurate.

KatrinaKaif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.424 = .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?

KatrinaKaif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.424 divided by .96 is???
