## anonymous one year ago what is 66 2/3% of 39?

1. sepeario

What is that percentage as a fraction?

2. anonymous

again, turn it into a fraction. (66 2/3)/100 *39. = 3900/(66 + 2/3) =58.5

3. sepeario

Yes. Essentially what he did was multiply the fraction by the number; $\frac{ 66 \frac{ 2 }{ 3 } }{ 100 } *\frac{ 39 }{ 1 }$

Hmm, I got something different. You can do it two different ways...|dw:1439601959680:dw|

5. Bee_see

You can also just do 2/3 x 39 = 39/3 x 2 = 13 x 2 = 26 since 66 2/3% =.6666 and .6666=2/3
