84%, 43/50, 7/8 and .91

2. SmoothMath

You should probably convert them all into decimals.

3. Venomblast

well cya i need to head for biology class. bye :)

4. SmoothMath

Venom, giving answers is not helpful without giving explanation.

5. partyrainbow276

can u explain the answer @SmoothMath

6. SmoothMath

Party, these things are difficult to compare because they are all in different formats. If I convert them all to decimals, they are easier to compare.

7. SmoothMath

Are you allowed to use a calculator?

8. partyrainbow276

yea

9. SmoothMath

The easiest way to convert a fraction into a decimal is just to put it into your calculator. So, do that with the fractions and see what you get.

10. SmoothMath

To convert a percentage to a decimal, just move the decimal two places to the left.

i already did that and i got .86

12. xxfreshboy

uhm as @SmoothMath said convert them into decimals itll be esiar so 84% turns into 0.84 and 43/50 turns into 0.86, 7/8 is uh 0.875, and .91

13. xxfreshboy

0.91*

14. SmoothMath

Okay, so 43/50 is .86 And how about 7/8?

15. partyrainbow276

0.875

16. partyrainbow276

18. Venomblast

i was going to explain it >.>. i had class i needed to attend.

19. SmoothMath

Haha, okay. Good to hear. Just know that in general, giving someone the answer tends to keep them from thinking through the problem at all. If you're at the destination already, why travel the path to get there?
