ill just retype it.

calculate 0.76% of 150% of 6000.
i did:
0.076 x 150 = 1.14
6000 x 0.014 = 68.4
but im not really sure how to do it.
plz help! :)

• math gr8 -

wait ahhh!!!

i did:
0.0076 x 150 = 1.14
6000 x 0.014 = 84
sorry. :)

• math gr8 -

0.76 * 1.5 = 1.14

6000 * 1.14 = 6840

Another way you can do it is:

1.5 * 6000 = 9000
9000 * 0.76 = 6840

• math gr8 -

Is it 76% or 0.76% ???

• math gr8 -

its 0.76%.

• math gr8 -

OK:

1.5 x 6000 = 9000
then
.0075 x 9000 = 68.4

• math gr8 -

Sorry -- .0076 (not .0075)

• math gr8 -

wait mine or ms sues was correct??

• math gr8 -

68.4 is correct because the problem says 0.76%.

If the problem had said 76%, Ms. Sue's answer would be correct. It's just a matter of where that decimal is placed.
