You should convert all of them to the same unit. I chose to use pecentages.
California is already written as a percent 4.25%
Montana: 1. Convert to a decimal by dividing 1 by
30 .0333. . .
2. Convert the decimal to a percent by
moving the decimal two places to the
right 3.3%
New Mexico: Move the decimal two places to the
right 7.2%
Texas: 1. Convert to a decimal by dividing 9 by
125. 0.072
2. Convert the decimal to a percent
7.2%
Percentages from greatest to least:
7.2% , 7.2% , 4.25%, 3.3%
