A:

Answer:a) 6 1/4% of $3,875 is $242.18.b) 16 2/3% of 96 lamps is 16 lamps.c) 87 1/2% of 540.72 is 473.11 d) 33 1/3% of 750 boys is 252.52 boyse) 66 1/2 % of 240 kg is 159.6 kg.Step-by-step explanation:x% of y is calculated as [tex]\frac{x}{ 100} \times y[/tex]Here calculating the given percentages:a) 6 1/4% of $3,875Now, 6 1/4 = 6+ 1/4 = 6.25⇒6.25% of $3,875 = [tex]\frac{6.25}{100} \times 3,875 = 242.18[/tex]Hence, 6 1/4% of $3,875 is $242.18.b) 16 2/3% of 96 lampsNow, 16 2/3 = 16+ 2/3 = 16.67⇒16.67% of 96 lamps = [tex]\frac{16.67}{100} \times 96 = 16[/tex]Hence, 16 2/3% of 96 lamps is 16 lamps.c) 87 1/2% of 540.72Now, 87 1/2 = 87+ 1/2 = 87.5⇒87.5 % of 540.72 = [tex]\frac{87.5}{100} \times 540.72 = 473.11[/tex]Hence, 87 1/2% of 540.72 is 473.11 d) 33 1/3% of 750 boysNow, 33 1/3 = 33+ 1/3 = 33.67⇒33.67 % of 750 boys = [tex]\frac{33.67}{100} \times 750 = 252.52[/tex]Hence, 33 1/3% of 750 boys is 252.52 boyse) 66 1/2 % of 240 kgNow, 66 1/2 = 66+ 1/2 = 66.50⇒66 1/2 % of 240 kg = [tex]\frac{66.50}{100} \times 240 kg = 159.6[/tex]Hence, 66 1/2 % of 240 kg is 159.6 kg.
