Yes 22.5% is right. Which means your final score for the evening is 100%

Well done.

I'll try to log in at 7.00pm, but I am expecting a visitor so I'm not so sure how much time I can give it.

Goodnight.

Hi bob buddy or anyone my answers are

(1) 1/4 = 1/4 × 10/100 = 10/100 = 10%

(2) 3/4 = 3/4 × 25/100 = 75/100 = 75%

(3) 1/5 = 1/5 × 20/100 = 20=100 = 20%

(4) 3/5

(5) 1/25 = 1/25 × 4/100 = 40/100 = 40%

(6) 188/400 = 188/40000 ÷ 4/100 = 47/100 = 47%

(7) 44/200

(8) 75/300

(9) 380/1000

(10) 45/200

hi Mandy

(1) 1/4 = 1/4 × 10/100 = 10/100 = 10%

Not correct. This is what you should have done:

(2) 3/4 = 3/4 × 25/100 = 75/100 = 75%

correct!

(3) 1/5 = 1/5 × 20/100 = 20=100 = 20%

correct!

(4) 3/5

You have done 1/5 correctly. 3/5 will be three times as big.

(5) 1/25 = 1/25 × 4/100 = 40/100 = 40%

Why did you add a zero? 4% was correct.

(6) 188/400 = 188/40000 ÷ 4/100 = 47/100 = 47%

correct!

(7) 44/200

The last four questions are all ones you have met in earlier posts so have a look back.

(8) 75/300

(9) 380/1000

(10) 45/200

8, 9 and 10 are correct. Well done!

Let's work on setting out number 4 properly:

Here is the code to make your answer look like that:

`[math]\frac{3}{5} = \frac{3 \times ??}{5 \times 20} = \frac{**}{100} = **\%[/math]`

So you can copy that and all you have to do is put the right numbers in for the ?? and the **

Good luck.

[Math]\frac {3} {5}=\frac{3\time15}{5\time20}=\frac {45}{100}=45%[math]

Is this right

Why is it not working?

You have to get the code exactly right. The % sign isn't recognised but \% is.

It should be \times not \time.

And sometimes the spaces matter too. I put a space before and after \times to make that work.

Now to the problem itself.

It is not right yet I'm afraid.

The ?? must be the same as the number below it .... 20

Please try again.

[Math]\frac {3}{5} = \frac{3 \times 20}{5 \times 20} = \frac {60}{100} = 60\% [/math]

Am I right

`[math]\text{Q11. } \frac{2}{10} = \frac{2 \times ??}{10 \times 10}= \frac{??}{100}= ??[/math]`

`[math]\text{Q12. } \frac{3}{10} = \frac{3 \times ??}{10 \times 10}= \frac{??}{100}= ??[/math]`

`[math]\text{Q13. } \frac{7}{10} = \frac{7 \times ??}{10 \times 10}= \frac{??}{100}= ??[/math]`

`[math]\text{Q14. } \frac{1}{20} = \frac{1 \times ??}{20 \times ??}= \frac{??}{100}= ??[/math]`

`[math]\text{Q15. } \frac{1}{8} = \frac{1 \times ??}{8 \times 12.5}= \frac{??}{100}= ??[/math]`

Excellent. These three are all correct.

For Q14 the bottom number (20) must be times by something to make 100.

You can find the number by doing this on a calculator:

Once you have this number, times the top by the same.

For Q15 you can do a similar thing.

So do

Hope that helps.
