What is 28% as a decimal and as a fraction?

Also, can you tell me how you got the answer so I can solve the problems myself.

what is 0.28 and 28/100 ? or 14/50? or 7/25>

What?

• Algebra 1 -

BobPursley moved the decimal two places to the left -- or divided by 100.

28% = 0.28 = 28/100

Then he reduced that fraction.

My sister (6th grader) told me as a decimal it would be 0.28 and as a fraction 28/100 and then simplify to 7/25 is that correct?

Yes. That's what bobpursley told you.

Oh, I didn't notice till now. Sorry.

So my teacher is making me solve systems by graphing. One of them was 3x + y = 6 and 2x + 3y = 13 . I converted both of them into slope intercept form and got y = -3x + 6 and y = -2/3x + 13/3 . The thing is I don't know how to graph …
