To convert a decimal to a per cent multiply by 100 or move the decimal point two places to the right. Change the following to a %. 48 = ___________. 0.65 = _________ 1.6 = ____________ 4,800.0 65.0 160.0 To change a percent to a decimal, divide by 100 or move the decimal point two places to the left. Change the percent to decimals: 300% = __________ 0.05% = _________ 25% = _________ 3.0 0.0005 0.25 DATA REPORT & ANALYSIS
RANGE The difference between the highest and the lowest numbers. Example: The range in height of all the boys was 5.5 inches. Calculate the range of grades on this set of test scores. 65, 85, 82, 90, 75, 70, 68, 78, 95, 88, 83, 73, 71, 80, 79 Highest grade = 95 Lowest grade = 65 Range = 30

MEAN (Average) The average is obtained by adding all the numbers and dividing the sum by the number of items. 65, 85, 82, 90, 75, 70, 68, 78, 95, 88, 83, 73, 71, 80, 79 What is the average of these test scores? 78.8

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
