## Related Questions Freshwater has a salinity of .005 percent or less.   One half of a percent as a decimal is expressed as .005 Percent is out of 100 or 1 in most cases. 99 cents equal 1 dollar, so one HALF of ONE percent is .005 because one out of 100 = .01 so half of that would be .005 because .005 + .005 = .01  Same as 1/200, or 1/2 of a percent. x - 0.5% = 500x - .005 = 500x - .005 + .005 = 500 + .005x = 500.005Check:x = 500.005500.005 - 0.5% = 500500.005 - .005 = 500500 = 500So x - 0.5% = 500 when x is .005. 005 is not equal to 5 %; 0.05 is. 0.05 = 5/100 and "/100" is the same as "per cent".  One half percent can be written in decimal as 0.005 or just .005  0.005 percent of 1770000 = 88.50.005% of 1770000= 0.005% * 1770000= 0.00005 * 1770000= 88.5   One percent = 0.01 1/2 of one percent = .01/2 = 0.005  Multiply 0.005 by 100 to convert to percent: 0.005 &times; 100 = 0.5% 60 = 12000n Solving for the percent, we have: 60/12000 = n = 1/200 = .005 Multiplying by 100, you have 0.5%. .5% of 40 = .005 x 40 =.2 Another way to think of it: .5% is half a percent. One percent of 40 is .4; half of that is .2   When you have decimals you times them buy 100 to get the percent so .5 equals 50% and .05 equals 5% and .005 equals .5% 005 = 5 so the reciprocal of 005 = reciprocal of 5 = 1/5 = 0.2 0.5% of 33.8 = 33.8*0.5/100 = 33.8*.005 = 0.169 ounces. No. 50 percent would be half, therefore 50 percent of 1 would be .5 . However, .50 percent of 1 would be .005, because .50 would be equal to 1 200th.
