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 Campbells’ New England clam chowder provides 6% of the MDV of iron.

Tostitos -- 9% = 0.09 = 9/100

6% = 0.06=6/100 I 'm hoping this is right, I just need help because it has been so long since I have done this kind of Math and I will be taking a Math class for College real soon and I have found these on the web. Thanks but please let me know if I have this right or not.

Yes, you're right! Good luck with your studies! :-)
