Calculating ratios


#1

Simplification is the key. Bust up the monolithic number into its’
constituent parts.

115g = 100g + 10g + 5g

One tenth of 100 = 10
One tenth of 10 = 1
One tenth of 5 = 0.5

10 + 1 + 0.5 = 11.5

On the calculator, punch in 115.0 x 0.1 0.1 is the geeky way of saying
one tenth.
