calculate it as you see it
:P

- Selena2345

i don't understand what you wrote

- anonymous

98
---
100
98
divided by
100 ?

- anonymous

i spelled coincidentally wrong :P

- Selena2345

98/100=0.98

- anonymous

then
for percentage
you must move
the decimal place
2 spaces back

- anonymous

95%

- Selena2345

okay 95% is the answer

- anonymous

to get a decimal numeric value
move 2 spaces foward

- Selena2345

can you give me the answer @iforgot

- anonymous

the answer souldnt be a decimal or percentage, 1 min

- anonymous

an answer to that example

- Selena2345

okay @lillybeth123

- anonymous

but do you know how calculate percentage problems back and forth?

- Selena2345

no

- anonymous

the answer should be a number of questions correctly answered

- anonymous

that is what the question was asking

- Selena2345

what is the answer @iforgot

- anonymous

lets finish your question first...

- anonymous

it will be too confusing doing 2 things at once

- anonymous

i can look it up later, but im in a quiz, ill tell you the answer in a bit.

- anonymous

ok
back to my example
this is a given situation
TEST SCORE
98
---
100

- anonymous

This means that
98
---
100 <--- number of test problems

- anonymous

98 <--- number test problems correct
---
100 <--- number test problems

- anonymous

i don't see wat 98 has to do with her problem.

- anonymous

if you see my posts
this is an example

- anonymous

she/he has said that they are not very clear on
percentage calculation

- anonymous

98 <--- % out of
---
100 <--- number of problems
this is synonymous
when it is # %
out of #

- anonymous

i think she/he has to say \[\frac{ 85 }{ 100 }\] and multiply it by 60

- anonymous

as i said in my examples
98 < --- correct
--- = percentage yield
100 <--- # prob.
you want # correct
simple
60 <--- #prob
--- = correct
85 <--- percent yield

- anonymous

use what you want to solve for

- anonymous

@Selena2345 do you understand y i am doing this?

- Selena2345

no

- anonymous

do you understand
98
--- = 98 %
100

- anonymous

?

- anonymous

"point" 98 (or any number) becomes a percent when the decimal space is moved back 2 places
.98

- anonymous

therefore
98
--- = .98 = 98%
100

- anonymous

@Selena2345 you understand that?

- anonymous

if i had
1
it becomes 100%
1.5
it becomes
150%
.25
it becomes
25%

- anonymous

@Selena2345 you follow with that?
