• I need help with converting these kind of fractions into percentages: 13/15, 16/25, and so on.
• To convert a fraction to a percent, multiply by 100.
13/15 * 100/1 = 1300/15 = 86 10/15% = 86 2/3% or 86.666... with the 6 repeating. You would often be asked to round in this type of problem.

The same process works for your 2nd fraction.
Hope this helps.
• in this video i was not able to understand how did you come up with 3/5 instead of 6/10
• If you divide both sides of the fraction by two, then you will get a fraction that is equal to the original.
• how does a fraction help us with when you get older like what do we use it for
• Recipes
Equal slices of cake, bread, etc
Measurements of items (2/3 a gallon of paint, 1/4 a liter of water, etc)
• what is a dog? i need help i dont know
• A dog is an animal whose scientific name is Canis Lupus Familiaris. They are normally furry and like spending time with humans.
• I need help with this are fractions the same thing as desimals
• No they are not. But they can represent the same number.
• At the mark (or so), I don't understand how 44/100 turns into 11/25.
Specifically, I don't understand the 100 being simplified into 25, visually. How does that work?
• they simplyfied it for you. they divided 44/100 by 4. hope this helps:)
• I may never understand this. : (
• You got this!
• why does this thing ask if we need help and mark stuff wrong?? very weird
• If you get a hint you don't do the problem by yourself
• i dont know why but our teacher has us watch the videos so we can be graded as if the videos will affect the grade
• they will khan gives a deeper understanding so you really know what you are doing
• I need help converting decimals to percents when they are over two digits. Foe example, .391 How can I convert it to a percent?
• 39.1% All you need to do is multiply by 100, which is moving the decimal point to the right two digits. That's for any conversion from decimals to percent. Remember, you can actually have decimals within a percent. :)
