I prefer to work it out and not deflate the value of the answer by choosing the letters, which have nothing to do with math.
So let's work out the problem.
How many like math, and how many like science?

- phi

40 students at her school and found that 0.55 of the students like math
can you find how many like math ? (I would multiply 0.55 and 40)

- phi

they are saying 55% of 40 like math. How many is that ?

- anonymous

i got 22

- phi

yes,
then they say
25% of 40 like science. how many is that ?

- anonymous

ummmm i dont know... is it like 20?

- phi

25% of 40 means multiply \[ \frac{25}{100} \cdot 40\]

- anonymous

- phi

How many more students prefer math over science?

- phi

Ronny
Celina
Jack
Michelle

Ronny placed 0.15 of the brownies,
how many is that ? how would you figure it out ?

0.15 of 20 brownies,
0.15 of 20
that means 0.15 times 20

- anonymous

0.15*20 is not 10

- anonymous

3

- phi

yes. so Ronny put down 3 brownies.
they say Celina placed 3
Jack placed 30% of the brownies,
how do you figure out how many Jack placed?

- anonymous

um.. 0.30 * 3?

- phi

close. 0.30 of 20

- anonymous

so 0.30 *20

- phi

yes

- anonymous
