turn 5 1/2 % into simple form fraction

Sep 11th, 2014

"per cent" is latin for "per 100"

Thus, 5 1/2% would be written in fraction form as (5 1/2)/100, or 5.5/100

This, in turn, would be rewritten into simple form as 55/1000 (i.e., the decimal is shifted one place to the right in both the numerator and the denominator)

Finally, we would simplify this by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by 5 to get: 11/200

The simplified, simple form fraction is: 11/200

Please best my answer.  Thanks.
