In what year were there 0.5 as many states as today? year states 1792 15 1817 20 1836 25 1848 30 1863 35 1889 40 1896 45 1959 50

i don't understand the question, clarify

the table unit shows the number of states in the u.s. at different times in history. There are currently 50 states in the u.s. Use the info to answer the questions

also what percent of the current number of states had joined the u.s. by the year 1863?

in your question you mean 1/2 right

.5 is = to half i guess

if there are 35 states at 1863 then 70% of the states had joind by 1863

if there are 50 states what year equals 50=2x

here's a clue 50=2(25)

do you understand?

the answer is 1836

how did you get 70%

there are 50 states right

yes

so in 1863 there were 35 states, correct

yes

35(current)/50(total)

.7= 70%, right

yes but how'd u come up with .7

35(current)/50(total)

divide 35/50

okay

is there any other help you need

yes

in what year were there about 2/3 as many states as in 1896?

x=45, answer=(2/3)x

year=answer

what year did you get?

1848, any other problems

i still don't understand what to do with the fration

r u in algebra

6th grade algebra

Wow, I didn't know people took algebra that early

Take the fraction and mulitply by x

its 30 1848 i think i got it

good job, that's right any other problems

yes 2 more please.............which of the following is equivalent to 98%....0.49, 100/98, 0.98, 49/100? explain how you would write 5/6 as a percent?

which one do you think it is

100/98

r u sure

no or .098

i divided 98 into 100 and got .98

so what is the answer

not sure

you already typed it in

.98

so by dividing 100/98 is the way to get the percent

no, up above you told me that you divided 98 into one-hundred, 100/98 is more that one-hundred you divide 98/100 not 100/98 so the answer is .98

okay i did it backwards

exactly

any other

so 5/6=?% divide 6 into 5 =1.2

no

percent means per one-hundred percents above one-hundred means error 1.2= 120% you divide the denomintator by the numerator and that is the percent

so what is the correct answer

if i divide 6 into 5 i get 1.5

i mean 1.2

first of all if you devide 6 into 5 you get 1.2

second of all you are doing the opposite of what i'm telling you

try doing the exact opposite

5 into 6 is .83333333333

which means the percent is?

just so you know 5/6 means 5 into six

i don't know the formula

what do you mean formula?

83.3% rounded or 83 1/3% exactly

100 into .83=120

you aren't doing 100 into .83 you are doing 5 into 6

5 into 6 is .83 .83 into 100 is 120

if that's wrong im totally confused

no it's not wrong why do you keep saying .83 into is 120 though that has nothing to do with this problem

the problem says explain how to get 5/6 into a percent right

yes

so step 1: divide 5 into 6 step 2: mulitply by 100 now, what is the answer?

83

yessssss

do you understand how to find percents now

if you need a formula it would be x/y=z z*100=percent

wow it seems so hard yes i do thanks i should be able to finish and get a better grade so once i divide multiply by 100 thanks again

yes i am glad to help I remember taking pre-algebra in seventh grade it was confusing for me to once i took algebra 1 it all started making sense as long as you do the hw and keep up you should do fine if there any more questions i would be glad to help
