  1. I assume you mean 72%, not 0.72%.

    0.72 * 560 = 403.

  3. Whoever wrote the sheet made a mistake.

    0.0072 * 560 = 4

    It doesn't make sense that only 4 students completed the walk.

  5. Um 0.72% as a decimal is 0.0072, and since 0.72% is even 1% it makes sense that it’s 4 people. How ever, chances are , I will not be believed . This question is from the Alberta 2009 math booklet from the unit review questions section. Good luck , like if 30 people ran the race and 0.8 percent finished it, then your answer=
    0.008 X 30 , it equals 0.24. Use the 1 percent method
