1. 6.5% of what number is 325?

I got 325 ÷ 0.065 = 5000

Is that corrrect?

would it not make sense to test your answer by taking .065 times 5000?

As to your second question, you should have learned method to change between

percent <--> decimal <---> fraction

eg. to change a decial to a percent, move the decimal two places to the right, then add the percent sign, (0.125 = 12.5%)

there are 6 such conversions

make yourself a summary of them, then learn how and when to use them.
