    You need to find 5% of 10 mL. What's 5% of 10 dollars?

    i meant for "What's 5% of 10 dollars?" it's 0.5 dollars it's the same for 5% of 10 mL 5%=0.05 so, 0.05*10 mL=0.5 mL

    How many years are in a century? A hundred right? That's cause cent means a hundred. Next, if you're going 60 miles per hour that means 60 miles / 1 hour. So combine these two: 5 per cent = 5/100
