Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be Mike, just like @breanna1999 said because you would have to convert the decimals to percentages so 13%, 14%, and 50%.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To take a number like .14 and turn it into a percentage you must move it two spaces to the left and you'd get 14 then you add the percent sign 14%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, Let's get all of the values into decimal form. 13% > 0.13 times 6 0.14 times 6 0.50 0.78 0.84 0.50 Dan used the most milk.
