1. Change the following percentages to ratios and to decimals:

16 2/3%

.4%

9/10%

37.5%

0.166(repeating) or 16.6 (repeating)/100

0.004 or .4/100 or 4/1000

This one confuses me a bit... .9%? so 0.009 or .9/100 or 9/1000

0.375 or 37.5/100 or 375/1000

That's exactly what I got, so I must be on the right track! (there's no answer key with the practice exam the school sent in the mail.) I got an A in algebra and chemistry, but am weak on some of the basics. I'm pretty sure we won't be allowed to use a calculator for the preliminary test, so I've got to keep very careful track ofdecimal points when converting, dividing, etc.: )

Can you talk my professors into putting this on my finals?

I can try - I don't think they'll listen to me though LOL
