# fractions, decimals, percentages watch

1. how can I make myself better at fractions, decimals, percentages.
2. Easy as long as u learn the formular and how to convert percentage or decimal it's so simply u can have a look on mathsgeins.
3. You just have to practice doing as many as you can.
I’d recommend watching YouTube videos on it or checking out these websites

4. Understand the why and not just how to.

Percentage to decimal - you will get percentage pay rises (ie 1.5%) so you need to work out what they would mean for the amount of money added to your wage.

Fractions to percentage - this comes up a lot in cooking from dividing cakes up, to ratios when doing ingredients etc. Also carpentry when making things where cutting lengths of wood are entailed etc.

And so on.

Then know the how to and definitely cheat methods, some ways are so long winded and not very helpful. Try flash cards with the formula on, then self test with corbettmaths or the like.
