Help. Amy, Dan, and Mike are competing in a cooking competition. They all used different amounts of milk from a container holding 6 gallons of milk. Amy used 13% of the total milk in the container. Dan used 0.14 of the total milk in the container. Mike used 0.5 gallon of the total milk in the container. Who used the greatest amount of milk from the container?

    It would be Mike, just like @breanna1999 said because you would have to convert the decimals to percentages so 13%, 14%, and 50%.

    To 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%

    So, 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.
