*5. Determine the percent of each number. Give your answer to the nearest hundredth:*- A. 2/5% of 325 is 1.3 but if you estimate it you will get 1. This is how I got the answer:

Divide 325/5 to get 65

Multiply 20x2 to get 40

Multiply 65x2 to get 130

Divide 40/100 to get 0.4

Divide 130/100 to get 1.3

Another one is by finding the decimal:

Divide 2/5% to get 0.4%. Make 0.4 out of 100. Divide 0.4 and 100 by 100 and you'll get 0.004/1. The last part is where you multiply 0.004 x 325 to get 1.3.

- B. 15 1/4% of 950 is 144.875 but if you estimate it you will get 144.88. This is how I got the answer:

Divide 950/10 to get 95

Divide 10/2 to get 5

Divide 95/2 to get 47.5

Divide 5/5 to get 1

Divide 47.5/5 to get 9.5

Divide 1/4 to get 0.25

Divide 9.5/4 to get 144.875

Another way is by finding the decimal:

Divide 15 1/4% and you'll get 15.25. Make 15.25 out if 100. Divide 15.25 and 100 by 100 and you'll get 0.1525/1. The last part is where you have to multiply 0.1525 x 950 to get 144.875.

- C. 175% of $125.50 is $219.65 but if you estimate it you will get $219.70. This is how I got my answer:

Divide $125.50/2 to get $62.75

Divide 50/2 to get 25

Divide $62.75/2 to get 31.375

Another way is by finding the answer by decimal:

Divide 175 and 100 by 100 and you'll get 1.75/1. You now multiply 1.75 x $125.50 to get $219.625

*9. The highest point in Canada is Mount Logan, which is in Yukon Territory. Mount Logan is 159% as high as the highest point in Alberta, Mount Columbia. The elevation of Mount Columbia is 3747 m. What is the elevation of Mount Logan?*Divide 159 and 100 by 100 and you'll get 1.59/1. You now multiply 1.59 x 3747 and you'll get 5957.73 m.

*13. Suppose a real estate agent receives 5% commission on the first $200 000 of a house's selling price, and 6% on the remaining amount.*- A. What does commission mean?

- B. If a house sells for $345 000, how much commission does the real estate agent make on sale of the house?

To get 6% of the 145 000 you have to first- Divide 100/10 to get 10. Divide the 10/10 to get 1. Multiply the 1x6 to get 6. Divide 145 000/10 to get 14 500. Divide 14 500/10 to get 1450. Multiply 1450x6 to get 8700.

To get 5% from the 200 000 you have to first- Divide 100/10 to get 10. Divide 10/2 to get 5. Divide 200 000/10 to get 20 000. Divide 20 000/2 to get 10 000.

You then have to add 8700+10 000 which is equal to 18 700.
