Answers

  1. c.   To change a percent to a decimal, either divide the number by 100 and remove the percent sign, or move the decimal point two places to the left and remove the percent sign. Therefore, 0.06 is the correct answer.
  2. c.   The percent sign has been dropped, and the decimal point has moved two places to the left, so 0.09 is the correct answer.
  3. b.   The correct answer is 0.37.
  4. c.   The correct answer is 0.0304.
  5. c.   One hundred percent equals one whole. Therefore, 500% equals 5.0 wholes.
  6. b.   To convert a decimal to a percent, multiply the decimal by 100, or move the decimal point two places to the right. Therefore, 6.0% is the correct answer.
  7. c.   Convert the mixed number to a decimal to get 4.20%.
  8. d.   The decimal point has been moved two places to the left to get 0.2.
  9. c.   Convert the fraction to a decimal and keep the percent sign: % = 0.20%.
  10. a.   Change the fraction to a decimal and move the decimal two places to the right. Then add the percent symbol to get 20%.
  11. a.   The decimal point has been moved two places to the right to get 66%.
  12. a.   25% =
  13. b.   First, change the percentage to a fraction by placing . Then, change it to a mixed number and reduce to lowest terms: .
  14. c.   The fraction reduced to lowest terms is .
  15. a.   Change the percent to a decimal to get 0.70. Then, multiply: 0.70 × 600 = 420.
  16. b.   Change the percent to a decimal to get 0.40. Then, multiply: 0.40 × 240 = 96.
