Divide the numerator by the denominator to change to a decimal. Then multiply the decimal by 100% to change to a percent.
320=0.15
0.15×100%=15%
Percent is parts per hundred so the numerator of a number with 100 as the denominator is the percent .
320×55=15100 so
320=15%

Method 1: Writing 3/20 as a decimal using the division method.
To convert any fraction to decimal form, we just need to divide its numerator by denominator.
Here, the fraction is 3/20 which means we need to perform 3÷20.
This gives the answer as 0.15. So 3/20 as a decimal is 0.15
Method 2: Writing 3/20 as a decimal by converting the denominator to powers of 10.
Step 1: Find a number that we can multiply by the denominator of the fraction to make it 10 or 100 or 1000 and so on.
Step 2: Multiply both numerator and denominator by that number to convert it into its equivalent fraction.
Step 3: Then write down just the numerator, putting the decimal point in the correct place, that is, one space from the right-hand side for every zero in the denominator.
320=3×520×5=15100=0.15
Irrespective of the methods used, the answer to 3/20 as a decimal will always remain the same.

Use x 2 + y 2 + z 2 2 ( x y + y z + z x ) then inequality right
I don't know why use x 2 + y 2 + z 2 2 ( x y + y z + z x ) then inequality right?
P/s: Sorry i knowed, let x = a + b a b
We have ( x + 1 ) ( y + 1 ) ( z + 1 ) = ( x 1 ) ( y 1 ) ( z 1 ) => x y + y z + z x = 1

Factorial equality   1 3 5 ( 2 k 1 ) 2 k 2 !   = ( 2 k ) ! 2 k 2 k k ! k !
In a generating function identity proof in my textbook there is a step that I can't wrap my head around.

= ( 2 k ) ! 2 k 2 k k ! k !
How does one get from the left side of the equation to the right side? Is there an intuitive explanation as for why this makes sense?
