1,022,000 species of animals. vertebrates make up 42,000 & invertebrates make up 980,000 species. what is the percentage of animals that are invertebrates? how did you come to this answer?

  • math -

    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%
