The minimum daily values (MDVs)for certain foods are given. They are based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet. Find decimal and fractional notation for the percent notation in each sentence.

1 ounce of Tostitos provides 9% of the MDV of fat

1/2 cup of Capmbells' New England clam chowder provides 6% of the MDV of iron.

Express the 9% and the 6% as fractions and decimals.

6/100 should be reduced to lowest terms (3/50).

When turning a percent into a decimal, take the % sign off and move the decimal point 2 places to the left. So your 9% would be .09

Percents are based on 100, so to turn 9% into a fraction, just put it over 100. It would be 9/100. You must reduce it possible.

I hope this is what you need. Good luck!
