In a group of 84 students surveyed, the ratio of student preference is seven oatmeal eaters to four granola eaters to three toasted 0 eaters.
14. What percent (to one decimalplace) of the group prefers toasted 0's ?
mistake : 18.7 %
16. You have a bag with one white ball, six red balls, eight green balls, and three purple balls. In lowest terms, what is the ratio of red balls to the whole bag of balls ?
mistake : 6/8 = 1/3
right answer : 6/8 = 1/3 red balls : whole bag of balls
In the future I should read the questions clearly so that I'll see that I need the answers to be in lowest terms.
Next time I should pay attention to my ratio table so that I won't make any mistakes on my answers.
Next time when I'm trying to find a percent i should double check my ratio table to see if its correct.

1) 65/100 = ?/36
0.65 x 36 = 23.4
65/100 = 23/36
