### What is the percent of 12/16?

Without the use of a calculator
12/16 can be simplified as a fraction by dividing
the top and bottom by the common denominator 4
4/4
to get 3/4
if you divide 100 by 4 (as you multiply x 100 to get the percentage) you get 25 , as there are 3 1/4 in 3/4 25 x 3 get you a percentage of 75%
if you used a calculator you would divide 12/16 and multiply by 100 and get the same answer

### I cant get it...cant u please just tell me the answer?????

Nobody can answer your question, because you haven't stated what the percentage is of?

If you multiply something by 4 it is 4 times bigger, so 400% bigger. If you want the percentage of the smaller number in relation to the larger number, it is 25% of the larger number. The actual number figure is irrelevant, because you are just multiplying a whole number by 4.

As I have said many times, to get good answers, you have to ask good detailed questions.

### There are 80 students in statistics . You and 11 others earned the same score, what percentage of the class received your score?

You and 11 others = 12. So the answer is twelve eightieths.

12 divided by 80 x 100 will give you the answer.

You can check the answer as 10% of 80 would be 8 students. For 10 percent you just move the decimal place one number to the left 80.0 = 8.00.

### 3.In percentage terms, what is the approximate increase in participation from 2005 to 2008?

That depends on the number of participants in 2005.
If you don't give the full problem then we can't give you an answer. If, for example, 13,000 people commenced in 2005 then the percentage increase is 100%. If 130,000 people commenced in 2005 then the percentage increase is 10%.

### Formula for converting fractions into percentage.

Simplest method
1. divide the top of the fraction by the bottom
2. Then multiply the result by 100
3. add a percent sign to the answer so people know it is a percentage (i.e. per 100)
• e.g. 3/5 *100 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%

Alternative method Since percent means "per 100", you can try to convert the faction to the form ?/100
1. find a number that you can multiple the bottom of the fraction by to get 100
2. multiple both top and bottom of the fraction by that number
3. write down just the top number with the % sign added to the end
• e.g. 3/5 as a percentage
1. we can multiply 5 x 20 to get 100
2. multiple top and bottom by 20 = (3*20)/(5*20) = 60/100 = 60%

I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away! Please take the time to rate this answer.

### What is the percentage of absentee owners, it 202 owners are non absentee and 67 are absentee owners

You would divide 67 by 269, and the correct percentage is 24.9%, rounded off to one decimal place. In essence, you divide the absentee number by the total number of owners, then multiply the answer by 100 to get the percentage.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
