Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07% = 0.07 and 7/100 9.3% = 0.093 and 9.3/100 131% = 1.31 and 1 31/100 Since it is a percent all you really have to do is put that number over 100, and then reduce if you can.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07% is equal to .07 and 7/100. A percentage is out of a hundred. If you ever get 100% on a test, that means you got 100 out of 100 points. 7% is really 7 out of a hundred, so you divide by 100, or move the decimal point to the left twice. 9.3% would be 0.093 and 9.3/100. Since they probably don't want a decimal in the numerator, you can multiply the top and bottom of the fraction by 10 to move the decimal to the right and get 93/1000. There is a decimal in 100 and all whole numbers, you just can't see them. They're at the very end. So "100." is the same as "100" 131% would be 1.31 because you only move the decimal to the left twice. As a fraction, it would be 131/100. If they want you to simplify so it's not an improper fraction(when the number on top is bigger than the number on the bottom), then make it 1 and 31/100. Hope this helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want to multiply the denominator by 10 to make it 1000, you also have to multiply the numerator(the top) to make it 93/1000. Otherwise it's just 9.3/100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the question is asking what 18% of 50 is, then first you would have to convert 18% into a decimal like we did before. So divide 18 by 100. Then multiply that number by 50.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You only divide by 100 when converting the percentage into a decimal or fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.18 divided by 50 =0.0036?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.18 is 18% as a decimal. Since you want to find 18% of 50, multiply 0.18 by 50.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just 9. The only percentage is 18, but we changed that to 0.18.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so this one, what % of 148 is 37

rosedewittbukater

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For this one you would divide 148 by 37. So 148/37 = ? Do you know how to convert that back into a percentage? (hint: you multiply by 100 to turn a percentage into a decimal, then you must do the opposite to turn it back into a percentage)
