Hi sweetangel786,

a<b indicates a is less than b.
c>d indicates c is greater than 10.
For example, 25<100 and 18>7.
There are also symbols called less than or equal to.
x  ≤ 15 means x is either less than 15 or equal to 15, but not greater than 15.
Similarly, y≥10 means y is either greater than 10 or equal to 10, but not less than 10.
Percentage:- What percentage is 5 of 40?
The answer is 5/40 x 100% or 1/8 x 100%=12.5%.

In an examination,you score 360 out of a total of 500 marks.
What is your score in percentage?
It has to be calculated this way:- 360/500 x 100%
= 36/50 x 100% = 72%.

If 10% of the total purchase of 600 kilograms of materials are damaged, what is the quantity damaged?
10% of 600 kilograms = 10/100 x 600 kilograms = 60 kilograms.

If the price of the airfare from London to New York is $1500, and if the fare increases by 20%, what is the increased fare?
Original fare= $1500,Increase percentage= 20%
Therefore, Present fare = $1500 + 20/100($1500) = $1500 + $300 = $1800.
Brackets are operated upon thus:-

(1) 2[(5+7)-(2X3)]
First,the innermost brackets are to be opened.
2[(5+7)-(2x3)] = 2[12 - 6] = 2[6] = 12.

(2) 3[(8x2)-(3+5)-2(7-3)] = 3[16-8-2(4)] = 3[16-8-8] = 3[0]=0.
