This is how you do number 25 on the Number of the Day booklet.
All percent are out of 100. So, you need to make 2 to 100. If it is hard for you to make 2 to a 100, then follow these steps :
Step 1 : You need to change the the fraction to a decimal. Decimals are always out of 1.
Remember, whatever you do at the top you have to do at the bottom. Since, 2 divided by 2 is 1, you need to do divide 1 by 2. 1 divided by 2 is 0.5 or 0.50.
Step 2 : Now, you need to change the decimal to a percent. Since percent are out of 100, you need to multiply the bottom number to 100, or something else, if you didn't use the decimal.
Since I used the decimal, 1 times 100 is 100. Whatever you do at the bottom, you need to do at the top. 0.5 times 100 is 50.
The percent of a 1 and a half is 50%.
