HELP!!!!
what is 785% of 4
Do you know what percent is?
3.5 if you have to write 78.5%
Incorrect @exploringphysics
|dw:1356020812403:dw|
OK @skullpatrol it's been approximated the correct is 3.14 [pi] :)
if it's really 785% then ans is 100 times ie. 31.4
|dw:1356020934568:dw|
\[785\% \text{ of } 4 =\frac{785}{100}*4=\frac{157}{5}=31.4\]
Let me tell you a little tip that will help you in some math problems...." of " in all math problems means multiply, just like " is " means equals. Now look at your problem again...785% of 4. Write it like it is written...785% x 4. Now you need to turn your percent into a decimal. Do you know how to do that ? I will show you...to turn a percent into a decimal ....take your percent and move it two spaces to the left, and turn it into a decimal. 785 % = 7.85 (you see how I moved it two places to the left) Now your problem reads 7.85 x 4...now you just multiply and your answer is ....(31.4)
Im not sure if you found the answer but place the percentage over one -hundred and proceed with is over of
I'm want to tell you like I told someone else one minute ago go out of the pre-algebra section and into caclus or trigonumtry (excuss the spelling) and ask one of those I promise some one will answer all I know percent over decimal and is over of but Iv seen those type of problems you have in tricounty and Im prety sure that was all to that problem I tried looking on purplemath.com and I'm afraid that I could not find it
I see where someone has helped you you do know that you place four over the number one dont you and then follow the rules for multiplication
If I am seeing it correctly, it is asking 785% of 4. Translating this into a mathematical equation would mean 785 x 4 = 3140.
Let me try to answer it again. 785% of 4 is 7.85 x 4 = 31.4. To make it clear, (785/100) * 4 = 7.85 * 4 = 31.4. 100% of any number is the number itself, which means 100% of 4 is 4. 1% of 4 is 0.04 -> (1/100) * 4 = 0.01 * 4 = 0.04 So, 785% of 4 is 31.4 -> 785 * 0.04 = 31.4 Once again, (785/100) * 4 = 7.85 * 4 = 31.4 Hope this helps.
