### charis' scribepost for January 26 2010

determine the percent of each number.
give you answer to the nearest hundredth.

5. A) 2/5 % of 325
0.004 of 325
0.004 x 325 = 1.3
how i got 0.004 :
divided 5 and 2 and got o.4 .

b) 15 1/4 % of 950
1525 of 950
0.1525 x 950 = 144.88
how i got 1525 :
divided 1 and 4 and got 0.25
so i put it together with the 15 .

c) 175% of 125.00
1.75 of 125.00
1.75 x 125.00 = 218.75

6. A) 5/8 % of 520
6.25 of 520
6.25 x 520 = 3250
how i got : 6.25
divide 8 and 5 and i got 6.25 .

b) 75 2/5 % of 200
7510 % of 200
7510 x 200 = 15020
how i got 7510 :
divide 8 and 5 and got 10 .

c) 250 % of 76.50
2.50 of 76.50
2.50 x 76.50 = 191.25

if i did something wrong , please comment . thank you (:

Hello (:
You should add a little color to it next time.

For 5 a) isn't the the 0.004 suppost to be 0.4 .. and I don't get this .. "how i got 0.004 : divided 5 and 2 and got o.4."
b) I think it's suppost to be 15.25 not 1525.
c) where did you get the 1.75 ?

6 a) i think its 0.625
b) it's 75.4 ..
c) where did you get 2.50?

I hope you understood what I wrote Charis.. sorry if you don't

Charis, you did an okay job but I know you could do better. Maybe in your future scribes , you'll add some colour .. ( hint ) . Like Carla said ... the answer for 5A should be 0.4 and I still don't understand this little part ... "how i got 0.004 : divided 5 and 2 and got o.4." Maybe you should go back and fix these mistakes. Also since you did it one way, is it possible for you to do it a different way in case people don't understand the way you chose to do it. I also noticed that you made another mistake. Instead of it being 1525 for 5B , isn't it suppose to be 15.25 and how did you get 175% ?! For 6A, i'm pretty sure that its suppose to be 0.625 and also for that question i don't get "divide 8 and 5 and i got 6.25", how do you get that, like what do you divide it by ? Like Carla said, i think the answer for 6B is 75.4 and how'd you get 250% ? Judging by your scribe post, it doesn't seem as though you were helping us out. Your whole scribe post has soo many mistakes. :| Like i said, you should go back and fix these mistakes. ( I'm not trying to be mean and all but just fix it so we understand a little more ) Ohh well, at least you did something .. right ?
