Need some help with two questions
1. 6.5% of what number is 325?

Is that corrrect?

<< 6.5% of what number is 325?
I got 325 ÷ 0.065 = 5000
Is that corrrect? >>
would it not make sense to test your answer by taking .065 times 5000?
As to your second question, you should have learned method to change between
percent <> decimal <> fraction
eg. to change a decial to a percent, move the decimal two places to the right, then add the percent sign, (0.125 = 12.5%)
there are 6 such conversions
make yourself a summary of them, then learn how and when to use them.
