Reducing Fractions to Lowest Terms

Example: Step 1: Find a number that goes evenly into the numerator and the denominator of the fraction. With

48 8 6 the fraction to the left, the number that will go in evenly is 8.

÷ =

64 8 8

**Step 2: Check to see whether another number goes evenly into both the numerator and
**

6 2 3 denominator. Stop when there are no more numbers that can go into the fraction.

÷ = In the example, the fraction can be reduced further by dividing it by 2.

DECIMALS

Adding and Subtraction Decimals

28.50 Step 1: Line up the decimal points. 380.53

44.47 - 75.00

+ 3075.60 305.53

3148.57 Step 2: Then add or subtract.

Multiplying Decimals

Multiply 1.89 x 5.03 = ___

.

Step 1: Multiply the decimals as you would do with whole

× 5.03 Step 2: Then count the number of spaces of each factor being multiplied. Decimal

567 places are the number of spaces to the right of the decimal point, There is 2 in

94500 the top factor and two in the bottom factor, so the decimal is placed 4 spaces

from the right.

9.5067

Step 3: Show the total number of places in your answer.

Dividing a Decimal by a Decimal Number

Example: 4.374 ÷ .03 = __ Move the decimal point of the divisor (outside the bracket) as far right as

you can go. Then move the decimal point in the dividend (inside the

.03 4.374 → 3 437.4 bracket) the same number of places as the divisor.

→ 2 spaces

Place the decimal point directly above its position in the problem. Then divide the same way as divide whole

PERCENTS

Percents are used to describe a part of something. Percents are used to figure out sales or the amount of interest someone

will pay on a loan. When converting a percent to its fraction form, it will always have a denominator of 100.

**Changing Decimals to Percents or Percents to Decimals
**

The important key is where to move the decimal point. If changing from decimal to percent , you would need

to move the decimal point two places to the right and add the percent sign.

Example: 0.35 = 35%

0.8 = 80%

To change from percent to decimal, need to move the decimal point two places to the left and drop the percent

sign.

Example: 30% = .3

0.9% = .009

**Converting Fraction to Percent Form
**

Divide the bottom number of the fraction into the top number and move the point two places to the right.

Example: 4 3.00 = .75 = 75%

Finding What Percent One Number Is of Another

There are key words to remember that will help you solve the problem it is asking you.

The word ‘of’ in the sentence means to multiply.

The word ‘is‘ means it is equal to.

**Example: 9 is what percent of 45
**

↓ ↓

9= a (x) 45 The variable ‘a’ is being multiplied by 45.

Need to divide by 45.

9 = 45a

45 45

9

=a

45

9 9

÷ =a

45 9

1

=a

5

0.20 = a

20% = a Therefore, 20% of 45 is 9.

**Finding a Number When a Percent of It is Given
**

Example: 20% of what number is 16?

↓

.2 ⋅ a = 16

20

a = 16 Change the percent to fraction form.

100

1 16

a=

5 1

1 16

5× a = ×5 Need to multiply both sides of the equation by 5.

5 1

a = 16 x 5

a = 80

Practice:

Write the following in percent form.

1. 0.12 2. 3. 4. 0.233 5. 1.15

8 5

6. What is 11% of $3,000? 7. 60 is what percent of 12,000?

8. 28 is 40 % of what number?

**Answers: 1) 12% 2) 75% 3) 40% 4) 23.3% 5) 115% 6) $330
**

7) 0.5% 8) 70
