write 2 1/4 as a percent.
First you need to change the fraction to a decimal. Divide the numerator by the denominator to get .25.
You now have 2.25 as a decimal number. To convert it to a percent, move the decimal point two places to the right.
2 1/4 = 225%
Thank you, you made it easy to understand.
You're welcome. I'm not a math teacher, so I tend to think like a student. :-)
what it said was that dave, the oldest, was to inherit 5 times as much money as libby. libby the youngest, was to inherit 2 fifths as much as hector, the one in the middle. the will specified that the sum the 3 would share was $102,000.
