Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is there a specific question that you have that you need help on ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know your supposed to take the first number and put it as numerator and take second number as denominator, reduce, and change to decimal... but confused on how to go about that. and no i dont have a specific question i just want to know how to do it so i can do it on my own.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can translate A is what percent of B?" to A= x% * B (the is means equals, the % of B means multiply times B)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, with this set up, ignore the decimal for now. if you set it up as is over of, you crossmultiply the "fractions", then divide to isolate x to find the value of the missing number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be 24/32 then reduced to 12/16 then 6/8 and then 3/4...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No thats incorrect... we need to make it a fraction or division problem all we need to do is 24/32 and you would divide it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so .75? and im guessing it would be 75% as the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.024/32 = x/100 is the values plugged into the formula. this is how the problem is set up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you then multiply the first numerator (top) by the second denominator (bottom). and the same with the first denominator and second numerator

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. that would be the first numerator and the first denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the x would be the 2400?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation should now look like (because you multiplied x by 32) 32x = 2400 (from multiplying 24 by 100). then, you need to isolate the x. you do this by dividing both sides by 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0equation is a math problem with an equal sign. isolate means to make alone

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i divide 2400 by 32?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer, 75% was never wrong. just how you were trying to find it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All percent problems come down to solving this equation: $$\Huge\frac{x}{100}=\frac{a}{b}$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the method you were trying only works on a perfect fraction. something that divides together. what if i'd asked 22 is what percent of 23?
