what is 24 as a percentage?

what is the problem you are working on?

3 sharks 24 fish 18 crabs 4 dolphins 1whale what percentage are fish?

ok, to do this you need to figure out the total number of sea creatures first. how many are there?

50

ok, 24 of the sea creatures are fish, so there are 24 out of 50.

so evaluate this fraction (24/50) to a decimal

could you help me with other things?

0.48?

sure, right!

thank you

now to get the percentage, you multiply by 100, .48*100 = ?

48?

right, so 48% are fish. so the formula would be: find the fraction, evaluate the fraction to decimal, then multiply by 100, add the % (percent) symbol.

thanks

22) which creature represents 8% of the total?

ok, so 8% = .08 = x/50

40?

not quite, you off by a factor of 10. so x = .08 * 50

16?

It's also easy to view it as: How many % does 1 creature represent? If 50 = 100%, 25 = 50%

ok

pls help me !!! its due monday :(

no problem

thank you

how do i work it out?

Pick whatever style of approach you find is easiest, either the one I gave you, or the one dpflan did. Both are pretty much the same thing though but phrased differently. Think about the answers for a minute or two. Try to figure it out :)

is the ans 16?

If the answer would be 16, there should be a type of creature that actually has that amount represented. Is there?

So no, the answer is not 16, right? Try to figure out a better answer that we can agree on. Go back to our earlier replies and think about it.
