We are learning how to convert fractions into decimals and then into percents. Ok well our teacher had us draw out a line and make 25,50,75,100% on this line and then had us underneath it say what the fraction of it would be. Ok so here is where i am stuck (so to speak)
he said to get half of 25% we would need to divide 25 by 2 to get 12.5 and he said to make into a fraction which I got 1/8. This all makes sense to me.. now i know 1/16 is half of one eight and i got the decimal which is 6.25 but how does 6.25 go into a 1/16 fraction?
I divided 1/16 which got me 0.0625 which is my decimal and i know to move it over two places to the right to get my percent but i dont know how to make it into a fraction of 1/16? Maybe my brain is fried right now
