anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean sometimes not all
anonymous
  • anonymous
you might see a 98 meaning you got 98 questions correct out of 100 ---- 100 coicedentally it also means that you got 98 percent as you score

98 --- 100 98 divided by 100 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i spelled coincidentally wrong :P
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
98/100=0.98
anonymous
  • anonymous
then for percentage you must move the decimal place 2 spaces back
anonymous
  • anonymous
95%
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
okay 95% is the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
to get a decimal numeric value move 2 spaces foward
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
can you give me the answer @iforgot
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer souldnt be a decimal or percentage, 1 min
anonymous
  • anonymous
an answer to that example
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
okay @lillybeth123
anonymous
  • anonymous
but do you know how calculate percentage problems back and forth?
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer should be a number of questions correctly answered
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is what the question was asking
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
what is the answer @iforgot
anonymous
  • anonymous
lets finish your question first...
anonymous
  • anonymous
it will be too confusing doing 2 things at once
anonymous
  • anonymous
i can look it up later, but im in a quiz, ill tell you the answer in a bit.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok back to my example this is a given situation TEST SCORE 98 --- 100
anonymous
  • anonymous
This means that 98 --- 100 <--- number of test problems
anonymous
  • anonymous
98 <--- number test problems correct --- 100 <--- number test problems
anonymous
  • anonymous
i don't see wat 98 has to do with her problem.
anonymous
  • anonymous
if you see my posts this is an example
anonymous
  • anonymous
she/he has said that they are not very clear on percentage calculation
anonymous
  • anonymous
98 <--- % out of --- 100 <--- number of problems this is synonymous when it is # % out of #
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think she/he has to say \[\frac{ 85 }{ 100 }\] and multiply it by 60
anonymous
  • anonymous
as i said in my examples 98 < --- correct --- = percentage yield 100 <--- # prob. you want # correct simple 60 <--- #prob --- = correct 85 <--- percent yield
anonymous
  • anonymous
use what you want to solve for

@Selena2345 do you understand y i am doing this?
Selena2345
  • Selena2345
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you understand 98 --- = 98 % 100
anonymous
  • anonymous
?
anonymous
  • anonymous
"point" 98 (or any number) becomes a percent when the decimal space is moved back 2 places .98
anonymous
  • anonymous
therefore 98 --- = .98 = 98% 100
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Selena2345 you understand that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if i had 1 it becomes 100% 1.5 it becomes 150% .25 it becomes 25%
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Selena2345 you follow with that?
