Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Or you could multiply the fraction by 5/5.\[\frac{7}{20} \times \frac55=\frac{35}{100}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I was multiplying the expression by 1. I chose 5/5 because I wanted the denominator to be 100. Because we know what the decimal of 35/100 is......0.35.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep. That one shows 25 times N. The others are all equal to one another.\[0.25 N = \frac{25N}{100}=\frac 14N\]
