When 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.

0.2,2/4,2.5 or 25%

A fraction is simply a division equation, so you solve 2 divided by 4.

@amistre64 a percentage is just a decimal with a different sign. 25% is .25

.2 is also done for you

Now, 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

a 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"

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they want you to use it as a decimal in this problem i agree; but it still makes no sense

Sunshine447Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
to 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

the price is reduced by 25%; therefore if the price is $12, is it reduced by .25? and we buy it for $11.75

Sunshine447Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
no, we would pay $9

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then it is not reduced by 25% ... if 25% is just a decimal: .25
 one year ago

Sunshine447Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
reduced by = minus $12*25% or 0.25 = 3 subtract the $3 from the $12 $9

you 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

I 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)

25% is .25 because it's the original "25" with a decimal point instead of a percentage sign.

Sunshine447Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
by the way, the answer is .2, .25, .5, 2.5

true, but it is implied :P

Sunshine447Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
25% on a number line would be 1/4 from the far left or it would be written as .25 as a decimal :P
