### Answers

**d.**The correct answer is 405.45.**c.**Convert the percent to a decimal and multiply: 2.0 × 40 = 80.**b.**The correct answer is 11.7.**c.**The correct answer is 0.72.**a.**The correct answer is 126.24.**d.**A percentage is a portion of 100 where*x*% = . So the equation is . Cross multiply: 12,000*x*= 216 × 100. Simplify: . Thus,*x*= 1.8%.**d.**The correct answer is 175%.**a.**To solve the problem, first change the percent to a decimal: 0.0425 × 574 = 24.395. Then, round to the nearest tenth: 24.4.**b.**62.5% = . You should multiply both the numerator and denominator by 10 to move the decimal point, resulting in , and then factor both the numerator and denominator to find out how far you can reduce the fraction: . If you cancel the three 5s that are in both the numerator and denominator, you will get .**c.**First, divide the numerator by the denominator. Then, multiply by 100, or move the decimal point two places to the right and add the percent sign: 6 ÷ 80 = 0.075; 0.075 × 100 = 7.5%.**b.**A quick way to figure a 20% tip is to calculate 10% of the total and then double that amount; 10% of $16.00 is $1.60; $1.60 multiplied by 2 is $3.20. Another method is to multiply 0.20 × $16 = $3.20 to get the solution.**c.**A quick way to figure a 15% tip is to calculate 10% of the total, and then add half that amount to the 10%. In this case, 10% of $24 is $2.40, and half of $2.40 is $1.20; $2.40 + $1.20 = $3.60. Another method is to multiply 0.15 × $24 = $3.60 to get the solution.**d.**The correct answer is 9.576.**b.**The correct answer is 0.12.**c.**The correct answer is 2.52.**a.**To change a percent to a decimal, move the decimal point two places to the left and drop the percent sign: 0.6 and .
