Yay!!!! I've got it.
to simplify means to divide denominator and denominator by the same number :-)
In the same way as before. Just this time it's with fractions.
Multiply the numerators (the numbers above the line) together and the denominators (below the line) together, like this:
Which can then be simplified as shown above. So, 2/3 of 7/9 equals 2/21.
Thank you Winked. I understand now!!!
You multiply the two percentages together because when you see of, as in 1/2 of 20, it is the same as multiplying. So 1/2 of 20 is the same as 1/2 x 20, which equals 10.
Thank you so much everyone!!!!
7% of 9% = 7/100 of 9/100 = 7/100 * 9/100 = 63/10000
And it's a good thing too. Didn't he fail math?
Convert the percentages into decimal numbers by dividing by 100.
Can someone please help me?? I'm a Mum trying to help my son with his maths homework, and I'm not much of an Einstein. I just CAN'T figure out how to calculate 7% of 9%.
