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.
(a) 1 ounce of Tostitos provides
9% of the MDV of fat.
(c) ½ cup of Campbells’ New England clam chowder provides 6% of the MDV of iron.
a) 9% = 0.09 = 9/100
b) Try this one on your own. We'll be glad to check your answer.
6%= 0.06= 6/100 did I do it right?
Yes. You did it right. However, your teacher may expect you to reduce 6/100 to 3/50.
