### Mr. H's percent problem posting

A new week and a new chance to post.

The problem I found is this

Jon took a test with a total of 50 questions. His teacher told him that he must answer 90% of the questions correctly to earn an A. How many questions must he answer correctly to earn the A?

Please post an answer by placing it in my comments.

He must answer 45 of the questions corectly to get an A.

Solution:

To make it easier, change 50 into 100.

Because we know that 1/2 of 100 is 50.

So 90% of 100 = 90

Then just divide 90 by 2.

90/2. It should equal 45.

Yes. I think i got the question right.......

100% = 50

10% = 5 10% x 9 = 90%

90% = 45 (5x9)

90% of 50 is 45.

Jon must answer 45 questions correctly to receive an A.

haha, i think i did that right.?

He must answer______ questions.

part correct answer

whole = total questions

___= 90%

50 100% 50x90

100 = 45

so He must answer 45 questions.

Jon must answer 45 questions correctly...

SoLuTiON;

by using cross multiplication?..

100%=50(total questions)

90%(he must answer correctly to earn an A.)

90% X 50 = 4500

Then,

4500 divide it by 100 = 45...

:P

He has to complete 45 questions in order to get 90%

PART = 90% WHOLE = 100%

PART = ? WHOLE = 50

90 X 50 / 100 = 45 !!!!!!!!!!!

90%2=45

100%2=50

45/50is 90percent.
