Hello,
I am having a difficult time breaking the following fractions down! what is the common denominator?

98/983 of a 1/2 %
187/983 0f a 1/2%
39/983 of 1/2 %
155/983 of 1/2%
34/983 of 1/2 %
64/983 of 1/2 %
25/983 of 1/2%
65/983 of 1/2%

thank you,
steve o.

The easiest way of approaching this problem, in my opinion, is to change all of the fractions to decimals.

Your first problem (98/983 of 1/2%) in decimal form is 0.09969 x 0.005. Using my handy calculator, the answer is 0.0004984.

Please check back here to see how other teachers solve this problem.
