Re: please help me :(Whenever you see %, that always means that whatever number is before it should be divided by 100. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20060115 11:47:37
Re: please help me :(
Hey, you don't have an "Edited by...." under your post. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20060115 11:49:01
Re: please help me :(thanks you 2, i really apreciate that, hope your both around 2morrow lol #7 20060115 11:53:20
Re: please help me :(That's right. If it's a single number, just treat it as if it's 02, 03 etc. to make sure you don't get confused. It would be horrible to lose easy marks in a test just because of a silly mistake. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #8 20060116 01:30:55
Re: please help me :(can u explain how to work it out without using a calculator please? thnx i forgot to add tht in last night #9 20060116 01:41:40
Re: please help me :(You can do all of the above without a calculator. It's just multiplying decimals. Ugly, but it works. "In the real world, this would be a problem.

Re: please help me :(If you want to find x% of y, then it's very easy to do without a calculator as long as y ends in 00, as it does here. Just divide by 100, then multiply by x. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #11 20060116 02:22:09
