For example once you draw one diagonal in a square, it is split into two triangles and will not squish into a parallelogram.

This is not just theory. It is how you build bridges and buildings.

**Reiny**, Monday, March 16, 2009 at 2:49pmmIA, don't tag new questions on the end of other problems, start a new post.

percent means per centum or per hundred

so whatever the percentage number is, divide it by 100, then reduce to lowest terms if needed.

e.g.

35% = 35/100 = 7/20

7% = 7/100

12.3% = 12.3/100 = 123/1000
