    aug.239000
    sep.225000
    oct.231000
    nov.171000
    dec.184000

    im supposed to round ot off to the whole percent

  • math -

    To find the percentages, divide the monthly number of marriages by the yearly total.

    Feb.
    155,000 / 2,342,000 = 0.066 = 7%

    Mar.
    147,000 / 2,342,000 = 0.062 = 6%

    I'm sure you can do the rest of the months now. :-)

  • math -

    [#marriages/2,342,000]*100 = %
    [100,000/2,342,000]*100 = 4.2%
    That rounds to 4%.
    Your sentences and questions are hard to read and understand because you used no (or very little) punctuation. That kind of structure is fine for texting friends but not when doing formal writing.

    You're welcome, Destiny.

    DrBob isn't the only one who finds lack of punctuation and capitalization hard to read. Most of us are retired teachers or professors who volunteer to help students on the Jiskha Forum. Our eyes aren't used to text-message formats. Besides, when you're asking professionals for educational assistance, it's only appropriate that you use standard English.
