00:00:02.030 --> 00:00:05.280
What percent of 30 is 1.1?
00:00:06.020 --> 00:00:08.420
Round the result to the nearest tenth.
00:00:09.690 --> 00:00:17.480
1.1 out of 30 can be written as a fraction, 1.1 over or divided by 30.
00:00:18.810 --> 00:00:22.120
The word percent means “out of 100.”
00:00:23.170 --> 00:00:29.840
Therefore, to turn any fraction into a percent or percentage, we need to multiply by 100.
00:00:31.330 --> 00:00:40.950
Typing this into the calculator gives us an answer of 3.666 and so on or 3.6 recurring.
00:00:42.690 --> 00:00:45.910
We were asked to give our answer to the nearest tenth.
00:00:46.480 --> 00:00:49.890
This means we need to round to one decimal place.
00:00:50.860 --> 00:00:54.990
Our deciding number becomes the six in the hundredths column.
00:00:55.770 --> 00:00:58.910
As this is greater than five, we need to round up.
00:01:00.200 --> 00:01:05.880
Rounding 3.6 recurring up gives us an answer of 3.7.
00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:13.250
We can therefore say that 1.1 is 3.7 percent of 30.
