The fraction is \(5\frac{1}{2}\%\) The percent sign represents "percent". This word it comes from Latin for "per centi" or "for one hundred" Which basically means that \(x\%=\frac{x}{100}\)

hey can u friend request me plz
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont understand that
anonymous
  • anonymous
The percent sign represents a way of specifying a fraction over one hundred. For instance, \(50\%\) represents \(\frac{1}{2}\) of something. WHY? Because \(50\%=\frac{50}{100}=\frac{1}{2}\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats not my question look bac at it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know but I was just showing the meaning of a percent. SO That means that \(5\frac{1}{2}\%\) Is the same thing as \(5\frac{1}{2}\div\frac{100}{1}\) So we can say that \(5\frac{1}{2}=\frac{11}{2}\) And that therefore the fraction is \[\frac{11}{2}\div\frac{100}{1}=\frac{11}{2}\times\frac{1}{100}=\frac{11\times1}{2\times100}=\frac{11}{200}\]

  • anonymous
oh ok thx but answer my qusetion too
anonymous
  • anonymous
Whats your question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
look above beside my name i guess lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah so the interest rate is \(5\frac{1}{2}\%\) And they're asking you to write as a fraction right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup
anonymous
  • anonymous
So then we need to divide the percent \(5\frac{1}{2}\) by one hunded. OK?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i think i got so thx for helping anyway thx im closeing it
anonymous
  • anonymous
in sumpliest form
anonymous
  • anonymous
do taht will be 11/2? correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so*
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right. So then you need to compute \[\frac{11}{2}\div\frac{100}{1}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think opposite 100 over 1 divide 11 over 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
AH! But that will give you completely different answers. you have to do it as \[\frac{11}{2}\div\frac{100}{1}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok i see now
anonymous
  • anonymous
thx
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok im going to close it now ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
In other words, \[\frac{11}{2}\div\frac{100}{1}\neq\frac{100}{1}\div\frac{11}{2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea i c im closeing now but if u want u can help me with the other plomers any thx a lot
anonymous
  • anonymous
Anytime @vk278
