Subject: Basic Math
I do not understand how to mentally calculate what is, say, 150% of any given number. How?
Well, first understand that saying 150% is basically saying what is 1.5 times the number we have. If we have the number 10, 1.5 times 10 is 15! Another way you can do such math mentally is by understanding that 150% can be be split into this: 100% of the number + 50% of the number. So let us say the number is 40. What is 150% of 40? 100% of 40 = 40 50% of 40 = 20 Add those two together! 40 + 20 = 60! Viola!
FAQ: How do I punctuate a sentence with commas and semi colons? I never seem to understand those!
It is as simple as this! If you are taking a small pause, add a COMMA. However, if you are saying something which is related to the current sentence but provides added information, use a SEMI COLON. They are also used to conjoin two sentences with conjunction adverbs. Not having a strong foundation in grammatical concepts can confuse a student while writing. Having a thorough understanding of grammar can help them avoid a frustrating life reading and writing English! It is actually fun!
