What are you multiplying and dividing and by what number
by: Sherri

What are you multiplying and dividing and by what number to get those answers David.I want to learn and I'm curious.I usually go by the proportion technique such as 0.03 x 1000/500.I feel like I'm going about it the wrong way.Are you dividing your answers by the 500?
