0.25 of 1 percent

0.25 is \(\frac{1}{4}\). 1 percent is \(\frac{1}{100}\)

Of means multiplication.


0.25 of 1 percent = \(\frac{1}{400}\)

Option B is the answer.

(D) 1/25
(E) 1/4



0.25 of 1% is equal to say \(0.25*\frac{1}{100}\) = \(\frac{0.25}{100}\) = \(\frac{25}{(100*100)}\) = \(\frac{1}{400}\)

answer B

I am not a native English speaker, and is a bit confused towards the meaning "of."
In terms of 1/5, you say one of five, right? Is there any way to distinguish?
