Divide 980,000 by 1,022,000. You'll get a decimal answer. Move the decimal point two places to the right to get the percentage.

• math -

The fraction of animal species that are invertebrates is 980,000/1,022,000 = 0.959. Convert that to percent

• math -

You should slide your decimal over 2 places so that you get 95.9%
