Name: Julie Question: how would you find the percent of 33 1/3 out of 90 by using fraction settup!I can do whole numbers but not mixed. This is how to do whole numbers say it was 33 of 90
33 x 90 = 2970 so how do you do it with a mixed number Hi Julie,To work with the mixed number 33 1/3 I would first express it as a fraction. Now repeat the process you used for 33, but using 33 1/3 written 100/3. That is 33 1/3 x 90 = 100/3 x 90 = 3000 and continue. Cheers,Penny
