To convert from a percentage into a fraction, divide the percentage by 100. Since this makes a fraction with a fractional numerator, (1.8 / 100) you should multiply both the top (the numerator) and bottom (the denominator) of the fraction by 5, to make both of the numbers in the fraction equal whole numbers. In this case, the fraction is equal to 9 / 500 or nine five-hundredths.

18 out of 60 is 30%. Calculating percentage requires division, and you want the denominator (the bottom number in the fraction) to be 100. When you say 18 out of 60, you are really saying 18 divided by 60. We want to change this fraction so that the 60 is 100. 18/60 is the same as 9/30, which is 3/10, which is 30/100. The number on top of the 100 is the percentage.

It represents an IQ in the top 10 percentile (approximately).

3 out of five can be written as 3/5. To find the equivalent percentage, divide the top number by the bottom number, move the decimal point to the right 2 places and you will have the percent equivalent: 3 ÷ 5 = .6, then move the decimal 2 places to the right = 60% Also, girls vivi's are gonna get sucked really good, and then hand stucked up.

You turn a fraction into a decimal by dividing the top number by the bottom. And you turn a decimal into a percent by multiplying the decimal by 100.

Professional whats?Actually, by law, everyone must pay taxes to the commonwealth in which they live and for any services or products they pay for which are deemed taxable.It's just that the tax laws are written to favor the wealthy.Of course professionals pay taxes...in fact much more than all others combined...and historically....they and the aristocracy were frequently the only ones to do so. More clearly, they use less of the things taxes are needed to pay for...(they don't use public services much), and just as clearly, buy many more things that have sales, excise and other taxes placed on them than those who live at a more substance level.Facts: http://www.taxfoundation.org/taxdata/show/250.html Where the independent and in depth analysis to support (the top 1% of earners pay 40% of all the tax): "This year's numbers show that both the income share earned by the top 1 percent and the tax share paid by the top 1 percent have reached all-time highs. In 2005, the top 1 percent of tax returns paid 39.4 percent of all federal individual income taxes and earned 21.2 percent of adjusted gross income, both of which are significantly higher than 2004 when the top 1 percent earned 19 percent of AGI and paid 36.9 percent of federal individual income taxes." And "The top-earning 25 percent of taxpayers (AGI over $62,068) earned 67.5 percent of the nation's income, but they paid more than four out of every five dollars collected by the federal income tax (86 percent). The top 1 percent of taxpayers (AGI over $364,657) earned approximately 21.2 percent of the nation's income (as defined by AGI), yet paid 39.4 percent of all federal income taxes. That means the top 1 percent of tax returns paid about the same amount of federal individual income taxes as the bottom 95 percent of tax returns."

According to the OECD, Denmark (26.4 percent), Norway (19.7 percent), and Sweden (22.1 percent) all raise a high amount of tax revenue as a percent of GDP from individual income taxes and payroll taxes. This is compared to the 15 percent of GDP raised by the United States through its individual income taxes and payroll taxes for instance. In order to raise a lot of income tax revenue, income tax rates in Scandinavian countries are rather high except for that of Norway. Denmark's top marginal effective income tax rate is 60.4 percent. Sweden's is 56.4 percent. Norway's top marginal tax rate is 39 percent. Scandinavian income taxes raise a lot of revenue because they are actually considered flat. In other words, they tax most people at high rates, not just the high-income taxpayers. The top marginal tax rate of 60 percent in Denmark applies to all income over 1.2 times the average income in Denmark. Sweden and Norway have similarly flat income tax systems. Sweden's top marginal tax rate of 56.9 percent applies to all income over 1.5 times the average income in Sweden. Norway's top marginal tax rate of 39 percent applies to all income over 1.6 times the average Norwegian income.
