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
A) 1 OUNCE of Tostitos provides 9% of the MDV of Fat.
C)1/2 cup of Campbells New England clam chowder provides 6% of the MDV of iron. Can someone tell me where to begin.

YOu are given the percents. Convert it to decimal percent, and fractions.
example: 14% converts to .14 and 14/100 
A percent sign means the parts of 100. So 
9% = 0.09 = 9/100
What do you think the notations are for 6%? 
0.06= 6/100

Right!

How would you turn a fraction into a percent example 1 1/3. would it be 1x3=3+1=4 = 0.04%

Identify the rate, base, and amount in each statement or question. Do not solve the exercise at this point.
150 IS 75% of what number? how do youb go about finding the rate and base?
