Math percentage question

How do you calculate percentages on surveys?. I surveyed 32 people on 10 diffrent questions. Thanks Mary

Hi Mary,
Each question per each person is worth exactly 3.125% (100:32).  Now, assume you asked a certain question 32 different people and recieved the following answer:
7 choosed A, 9 choosed B, 6 choosed C, 5 choosed D, and 5 chosed E.
7 means 21.875% (21.9%)  (3.125 *7)
9 means 30.125% (30.1%)  (3.125 *9)
6 means 18.750% (18.8%)  (3.125 *6)
5 means 15.625% (15.6%)  (3.125 *5)
Best regards,

Love is the battery of life....

in general, divide the various answers by 32. this will produce a decimal, which you can then convert to a % by moving the decimal point 2 places to the right and adding a % sign.

It may be that this problem refers to the fact that when we use squaring to solve radical equation we create solutions that did not previously exist. For example if we try to solve SQRT of(x) = -3 by squaring, we get x = 9 but in fact a graph of y = SQRT of(x) never intersects with y = -3 ...

Jay is correct. There's something missing from your narration of the steps. If I follow the steps you describe with my own secret numbers, it doesn't work.
