1.5 as a percent and fraction
Question
2 Answer

1.5 as a percent would equal 150% because imagine that the decimal was in front of the 1. Now all you would do is move the decimal over 2 and BAM 150.
If you try it on paper it makes more sense.
Now 1.5 as a fraction is 3/200. Don't ask me how I know that, but I just do.
Hope this helps you!

Hello There!
"Percent" means "per 100" or "over 100". So, to convert 1.5 to percent we rewrite 1.5 in terms of "per 100" or over 100.
Multiply 1.5 by 100/100. Since 100/100 = 1, we are only multiplying by 1 and not changing the value of our number.
[tex]\frac{1.5}{1}[/tex] × [tex]\frac{100}{100}[/tex] ≈ [tex]\frac{150}{100}[/tex]
150/100 is 150 over 100 and means 150 per 100. 150 "per 100" means 150 "percent" or 150%
Therefore, we have shown that
1.5 = 150%
AS A FRACTION
Rewrite the decimal number as a fraction with 1 in the denominator
1.5 = [tex]\frac{1.5}{1}[/tex]
Multiply to remove 1 decimal places. Here, you multiply top and bottom by [tex]10^{1}[/tex] = 10
[tex]\frac{1.5}{1}[/tex] × [tex]\frac{10}{10}[/tex] = 15/10
When this is reduces you get 3/2
and as a mixed number it's 1 and 1/2
