There are probably several ways to do this question.

This is the first one that came to mind. Is it easier to make 2/5 an equivalent in terms of 200 or is it easier to make 7/200 an equivalent in terms of 5. I don't like fractions or decimals, so let's go with the first one.

To make it easier to see, I'm going to re-write the equation

2 = x

--- -----

5 200

200/5 = 40 so we are multiplying 5 by 40 to get 200 in the denominator. So we have to multiply 2 by 40 in the numerator to get the equivalent fraction.

Now we have

2 80

--- = -----

5 200

Since 80/200 is equal to 2/5, we can now compare 80/200 with 7/200.

Back to the original question, 7/200 is less than 80/200.

Sorry for being so verbose. I just wanted to explain all my steps;)

Good luck,

Paul

This may not be what you want, but I turn the mixed number into a fraction. Say 5 1/2, you multiply the whole number (5) by the denominator for the fraction (2), then add the numerator. So you have 5X2+1. That is the new numerator, it goes over the denominator. This gives you 11/2. To check it divide the numerator by the denominator. 2 into 11 gives you 5 (Rem) 1. 1 is the numerator now and it goes over the denomerator. 5 1/2.

I know it sounds like a lot, but try about ten or so, it becomes 2nd nature. You can make it all into decimal, 5 1/2 becomes 5.5, but now you have to put more numbers into the equation.

This is true. I had a math teacher ask me if he had to cut down a tree so I'd have enough scratch paper.

When comparing fractions **with the same numerator,** the larger fraction is the one with the **SMALLER denominator.**

**2/6> 2/8**

Bot are numbers that are written in two different representations. To compare them safely you must convert them to the same representation.

0.08=8/100 or 8%

Now compare 8 % and 6%

Another way to do it is to convert 6% to its decimal representation then compare it to 0.08

6%=6/100=0.06

Since we have fractions let us just compare them. When comparing fractions, we first convert them to the same denominator (here it is 100). The greater one is the one with the greater numerator: 8 is greater than 6.

**Conclusion: No, 0.08 is not less than 6%**

0.08=8/100 or 8%

You will readily agree with me that there is surer source of information than the guide book. Here is a link to it.

goodman makes a very good furnace and just as durable as a trane at a fraction of the cost. i'll stand behind goodman just as i would a trane.
