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.

the 25% doesnt make any sense to me .....

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
anonymous
  • anonymous
.2 is also done for you

  • anonymous
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

Ok thanks! my first answer was B...

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"
amistre64
  • amistre64
they want you to use it as a decimal in this problem i agree; but it still makes no sense
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, we would pay $9
amistre64
  • amistre64
then it is not reduced by 25% ... if 25% is just a decimal: .25
anonymous
  • anonymous
reduced by = minus $12*25% or 0.25 = 3 subtract the $3 from the $12 $9
amistre64
  • amistre64
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
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)
anonymous
  • anonymous
25% is .25 because it's the original "25" with a decimal point instead of a percentage sign.
anonymous
  • anonymous
by the way, the answer is .2, .25, .5, 2.5
amistre64
  • amistre64
there is no "25%" on a number line :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
@meilendurcer i posted the answer above
anonymous
  • anonymous
true, but it is implied :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
25% on a number line would be 1/4 from the far left or it would be written as .25 as a decimal :P

@amistre64 I gave you a medal :)
