Half of anything is half of that thing, so half of one percent is half a percent, or 0.5%.

How do I change a percentage to a fraction


Use this http://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/math/percent-to-fraction-calculator.php
OR to work it out yourself.....#

How to convert percent to fraction

  1. Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
  2. Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
  3. Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer: f = 10 to power d
    Example:
    f = 10 power 2 = 100
  4. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f: x * f / f = y / f
    Example:
    2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100
  5. Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction. Example:
    gcd(256,100) = 4
  6. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value: Example:
    256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25
Example One percent is equal to one hundredth:
1% = 1/100
So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.
For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:
56% = 56/100 = 14/25

How can i make the percent sign in the graphic calculator fx-9860gii


[OPTN][LIST] scroll right till you find %.
It is used inside programs and works on lists.
Create a list of data and type it in under STAT


2_2_2013_10_57_12_pm.jpg
Close the list editor (Press Menu to go to Run>Mat).
In Run>Mat Press OPTN>List>F6..>%.
The word Percent is displayed. Enter the name List (OPTN>List) then the list number (1-6). This is what you see (without the owrd Done).

2_2_2013_11_00_36_pm.jpg
Press the EXE
The calculator displays a list with the same dimension as List 1. Each element represent the % of the corresponding element of list 1 with respect to the total of the list L1.
In fact it calculates the relative frequency of each element.

Maybe that does not answer your question but really converting a decimal to a percent value or a percentage into a decimal is a rather trivail matter. Just move the decimal mark (if there is none put one at the end of the number) two places to the left to get the decimal equivalent or two places to the right to get the percent equivalent of a decimal number.

How to program puting a pecentage?


Sad as it may be, this calculator does not have a % button/key/menu. So do not look for it. However you can still convert your decimal numbers to percent values.
1 %= 1 per cent (100) = 1/100=0.01
0.01=0.01*100/100=(0.01*100)/100=1/100=1%
To convert a decimal number to %, move the decimal mark two places to the right.
To convert a percent value to a decimal value, move the decimal mark two places to the left and drop the % symbol.
75%=0.75
135%=1.35

I have a Casio FX83ES Scientific Calculator and I am trying to work out 1 out of 1700 as a percentage using it. When I type in 1/1700 I get 1 over 1700. I press S<>D and then I get...


1÷1700 expressed as a decimal is 0.000588235, which is 5.882...×10^-4. [NB not 10^4]

To convert this to a percent, remember that "per cent" means "per 100" which also means "divide by 100". To keep the answer correct, if you are dividing by 100 you must also multiply by 100.

The get the answer in percent, you must therefore multiply the previous answer by 100 to get 0.00588235 percent. (or 5.882...×10^-2 percent).

The percent of 140 from 762.90 = ?


Sorry to say, soweeto54, but that question you've posted does not make much sense. It can be interpreted in three different ways, neither of which can be gleamed with much confidence. Yet I will still offer you three valid answers for your TI-83,

"The percent of 140 from 762.9 =". The troublesome part is the "from". Percents questions should be written in terms of "is" and "of".

TWO INTERPRETATIONS.

RESPONSE 1. The question could be read as "what percent of 762.9 is 140?". To do this on your calculator you simply do 140 divided by 762.9. From there, you simply move the decimal point two digits to the right to convert it into an equivalent percentage. So, that should be [1][4][0] [/] [7][6][2][.][9] [=] on your TI83. This was an example of a "percent of" question.

RESPONSE 2. The question could be read as "what percent of 140 is 762.9?" To have your TI83 calculate this you simply do 762.9 divided by 140. Of course, you will then need to move the decimal over two spots to the right in order to turn it into an equivalent percentage. Yes, it probably is strange to think of a number being more than 100 percent of another but it is a valid statement which occurs in the real world every single day. Nonetheless, for your TI83 you just press [7][6][2][.][9] [/] [1][4][0] [=]. This was another example of a "percent of" question. In fact, this is just the decimal reciprocal of the previous answer.

RESPONSE 3. The question could also be read as "140 from 762.9 will leave me with what percentage?" IE, 762.9 minus 140 will yield a number which is "x" percent of the original. Here, you would just do 762.9 minus 140, then you would take that answer and divide it by 762.9. From there, you'd do the old usual and move the decimal over two spots to the right for a percentage result. So, for your TI83 you'd do [(] [7][6][2][.][9] [-] [1][4][0] [)] [/] [7][6][2][.][9] [=]. Viola. This was an example of a "percent change" question. In fact, this is just the complement to response number one.

What button or formula do I use to calculate percentages


ok. first things first, percent mens, out of 100. you simply replace the percent with fractions. say you have $400. your workers get 20% of the money made each day. 20 out of 100=1/5 of 100.so your workers get 1/5 of the money which is 400 divided by 5 wich equals 80. i hope this helps. if you still have trouble, serch on the internet for the formula for calculating percent.

Percent to chemistry problems.


Hello

You should ask a question, we cannot guess what you want.

Percent means per 100 or 1/100. So 75% = 75/100 or 0.75. Here are some exemples of percent calculations with %

Percentage (5% of 250)

250 [x] 5 [2nd] % [=] gives 12.5

Ratio (Ratio of 250 to 5)
250 [/] 5 [2nd] [%] [=] gives 5000.

Add-On (5% add-on of 250)
250 [+] 5 [2nd] [%] [=] gives 262.5

Discount (5% discount of 250)
250 [-] 5 [2nd][%] [=] gives 237.5

Some percentages and decimal equivalents
1 = 100% ; 2 = 200%, 3=300%
0.5 = 50%
0.4 =40%
0.1 = 10%
1/3= 0.33333 = 33.33%
1/4 = 0.25 = 25%
2/3= 0.66666 = 66.66%
1/5 =0.2 = 20%
1/8 = 0.125 =12,5 %
Hope it helps.
