PercentagesI have a job interview in the morning for a local bank #2 20060308 08:21:32
Re: PercentagesIf you have one cake and divide between people they get half each  this is fractions. 2 x 1/2 = 1 (two halfs equal one whole). Another way to look at it is to say they get 50% each because just as 1/1 is a whole cake, 100% is also the whole cake. Since 50 is half of one hundred and they each get half of the cake, they are receiving 50% of the cake each. Aloha Nui means Goodbye. #3 20060308 08:25:16

Re: PercentagesI know I sound a total dunce so how could i figure out 8per cent of £20 etc #7 20060308 10:20:38
Re: Percentagesfind 1% of £20 i.e. divide it by 100. Last edited by rickyoswaldiow (20060308 10:31:14) Aloha Nui means Goodbye. #8 20060308 10:20:41
Re: PercentagesFirst figure out what 1% is by dividing by 100. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #10 20060308 10:55:54
Re: PercentagesThey both did it by going to 1% first, but you can also just turn 8% into a fraction. #11 20060308 11:54:34
Re: Percentages
Yes, you're 3 seconds faster than me. Well done. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #12 20060308 17:03:33
Re: PercentagesOr you can multiply 20 by 0.08. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations.
