  • Hello!

    The answer is 15,63 inches of rain.

    Why?

    In this case, 100 % , means the total of received rain inches, and it is equal to 62,51 inches.

    We can not operate with %, so we need to convert it to real numbers by dividing it into 100, so we have that:

    100 % is equal to 1

    75 % is equal to 0,75

    50 % is equal to 0,50

    25 % is equal to 0,25

    We know that New York received 62,51 inches of rain, and we need to know how much  inches of rain did New York Receive in November if the city received 25% of the total rainfall.

    Calculations

    Rain received in November = [tex](62,51) * (0,25) = 15,63in[/tex]

    Have a nice day!
