So i'm suppose to divide 54 into 900?

Math  Ms. Sue, Sunday, March 1, 2009 at 1:14pm
Nope  the other way around.
Divide 900 into 54. Your answer will be a decimal.

16.6?

Math  Ms. Sue, Sunday, March 1, 2009 at 1:21pm
No  your answer should be a decimal that converts to less than 10 %

Math  Elliot, Sunday, March 1, 2009 at 1:26pm
0.06
