Ok, most of these problems require some basic algebra and logical reasoning. They aren't that bad, I promise.

(1)What does 12% mean? How do you express this as a decimal? And once you get the decimal, how can you check to see if those other given fractions are equivalent?

(6)I'll go ahead and set this one up for you. $(.05)(2000)=(.2)(x)$
Do you see the reasoning?

Show me what you've tried on these and post back.
