Mason did 32 percent of the yard work
while Benjamin did 14 percent. Which decimal represents the amount of
work they completed together?
We’re told in the question that Mason
did 32 percent of the work. Benjamin did 14 percent. To calculate the percentage they
completed together, we need to add 32 percent and 14 percent. This is equal to 46 percent. Mason and Benjamin together completed
46 percent of the yard work.
We’re asked in this question to
represent this percentage as a decimal. To convert from a percentage to a
decimal, we divide by 100. 46 divided by 100 is 0.46. As 46 percent is the same as the
decimal 0.46, then this represents the amount of work that Mason and Benjamin completed
