a) 11 + 1 (you) = 12. 12/80 = 0.15 = 15%

b)40% = 0.4, 0.4 x 80 = 32.

c) 7.5% = 0.075, 0.075 x 80 = 6

Also, 0.5% x 80 = 0.005 x 80 = 0.4 students, which doesn't make sense.

see a.) if .15 = 15%, which is correct, then .5 is 50% not .005, therefore, 4 students failed but, we have calculated that 65% of the students have a grade above failing. The claim that 50% failed is false, there is only 35% left who have a grade other than the D and some other grade different than the 15% that is, 12 of 80 or 12/80.
