Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I don't know if it has changed, but we used to say "of" means

"times" and percent means "per cent" or "per one hundred" (100 pennies in a dollar)so to convert a percent to a fraction, we just divide it by 100.

Thus we have 20% x $60 or 20/100 x 60 or $12.

Good luck,

Paul

- Divide 20 by 100 to convert 20 percent to the decimal 0.2.
- Multiply 0.2 by the price of the item to calculate the amount of the discount. For example, if the original price of the item equals $24, you would multiply 0.2 by $24 to get $4.80.
- Subtract the value of the discount from the original price to find the price of the item after the discount. In this example, you would subtract $4.80 from $24 to find the price after the discount to be $19.20.

### How to convert percent to fraction

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

- Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
- 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.
- Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer:
*f*= 10*to power d*

Example:

*f*= 10 power 2 = 100

- Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f:
*x***f*/*f*=*y*/*f*

Example:

2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100

- Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction.
Example:

gcd(256,100) = 4

- Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value:
Example:

256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25

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

Here is a sample of the percentage calculations that the calculator can perform. You will not see among them the conversion from decimals to percentages.

To convert from decimals to percents move the decimal mark 2 places to the right and append the % sign.

To convert from percents to decimals, move the decimal mark 2 places to the left.

To convert from decimals to percents move the decimal mark 2 places to the right and append the % sign.

1/9 is about 11.1%

- divide the top of the fraction by the bottom
- Then multiply the result by 100
- 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%

follow these steps:

- find a number that you can multiple the bottom of the fraction by to get 100
- multiple both top and bottom of the fraction by that number
- write down just the top number with the % sign added to the end

- e.g. 3/5 as a percentage

- we can multiply 5 x 20 to get 100
- multiple top and bottom by 20 = (3*20)/(5*20) = 60/100 = 60%

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

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).

hi, compressing data is possible at a rate of 10 to 20 percent but compressing a file of 1024mb to 100mb is quite impossible and if it was it would take much time to be decompressed .

hope that this not will be helpful and don't forget to rate

kind regards
