Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you are solving something like this, you have to convert them to the same format. In other words, they must ALL be fraction, decimals, or percents. Decimals are the easiest.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A fraction is simply a division equation, so you solve 2 divided by 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, you order them. (I think you can figure that part out) Here are the numbers to order. 2.5, 0.5, 0.25, and 0.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a percentage is not a decimal .... 25% of 32 is 8 25% of 16 is 4 25% of n = n*.25 25% is not "a decimal"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they want you to use it as a decimal in this problem i agree; but it still makes no sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to make a decimal out of a percent, you don't have to calculate anything (that's what I was implying). Take 25% and all you have to do is add a decimal before the number and drop the percent sign. 25% > .25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the price is reduced by 25%; therefore if the price is $12, is it reduced by .25? and we buy it for $11.75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then it is not reduced by 25% ... if 25% is just a decimal: .25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0reduced by = minus $12*25% or 0.25 = 3 subtract the $3 from the $12 $9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you see my point tho; how are we spose to say that 25% is least or greatest in this construction by stating that 25% is a decimal? it makes no sense in this question is all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didn't say it "was a decimal", I said it "is just a decimal with a different sign" (implying that you don't need to further calculate it as you would for a fraction to a decimal)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.025% is .25 because it's the original "25" with a decimal point instead of a percentage sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.025% on a number line would be 1/4 from the far left or it would be written as .25 as a decimal :P
