To get the percentage of any number, you multiply the number by 100. So the percentage of 0.00009 is (0.00009)(100) = 0.009% ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let's look at it another way. We want to change the decimal fraction 0.00009 to a percentage. In the case of decimals all you have to do is to move the decimal point 2 places to the right - but why? Well, you must agree that anything multiplied by 1 does not change the "anything", but we want to multiply by 1 in a special way, and that is by multiplying the "anything" by 100%. Again, if you multiply a decimal by 100 the point needs to go 2 places to the right. Now, of course it is a percentage and must have the % sign. What was a decimal fraction has become a percentage fraction.

It will be 0.068 because it will due to the fact of all math teacher have tought there student.

We can agree that two equals two. Divide 4 into 3. The result is 0.75. 2 + 0.75 = 2.75.

7 and 1/2

A good measure of dispersion is one such that the a goodness-of-fit test shows that the observed values agree well with the expected values.

Ratified

In the Constitution it says that 3/4 of the States have to agree to ratify an amendment."....when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States..."

at least 9 states had to agree

Article V requires that for an Amendment to the Constitution to be effective, it must be approved by either three-quarters of the legislatures or Constitutional conventions of all the states. This fraction was chosen because the framers of the Constituton agreed that the Constitution itself had to be approved by the 3/4 of the states. Since approval of 3/4 of the states was needed to approve the Constitution in the first place, it made sense to require the same percentage of states to agree to amend it.
