A carton contains milk that is \$2\%\$ fat, an amount that is \$50\%\$ less fat than the amount contained in a carton of whole milk. What is the percentage of fat in whole milk? Express your answer as a common fraction in simplest form.

2%  = .02

Let the fat content in whole milk be x

And 50% of this =  .50x

So

x  - .50x  = .02

.50x = .02

x = .02/.50 = .04 =   4%   = 4/100 = 1/25   (fat content in  whole milk )

[I see you’ve hidden WATs wrong answer post...  But I’ve already composed this and WAT’s wrong answer post is only relevant for the first paragraph...]

Yes! Let the CipherStream, Wrong Answer Troll (WAT) help you –with a wrong answer from an AI-Chat set to condescending, pedantic speak –one of WAT’s favorites.  Not that he needed to, but you can bet it was additionally modified to make sure the answer is wrong in the style he prefers.

Hello CPhill, Sisyphus’ bolder is waiting for you...

There is some moss on him, but otherwise he’s the same. The Roman zero is still inside.

You may want to make special use of Sisyphus’ bolder, by setting it to roll over WAT...

Here’s an introduction to WAT, the Forum’s Wrong Answer Troll.

WAT is on a Mission from God, to troll and harass anyone who posts homework questions.

He does God’s work well. He answers questions with legitimate-looking wrong answers, sometimes he uses professional teacher/professor provided answers that he alters to present errant solution techniques and, of course, wrong final answers.

He also trolls and harasses anyone who answers questions. To WAT answerers are enablers; they enable and encourage the sin of homework cheaters. He hates them –even more than the homework cheaters. He rages at them.

He also creates accounts to post adulterated questions that are unanswerable, usually in the guise of juvenile carelessness, with missing parameters, or with parameters altered to make them unanswerable: The descriptive parts of the question are altered too: greater than becomes less thanearlier becomes later, ...etc, etc.

Some of his accounts post absurdly simple elementary questions. These are posted to waste the time of answerers, and to highlight the nature of homework spammers, mainly from high school students who are remediated with elementary math.  Some accounts that post these elementary questions have names with phonetic spellings of African-American dialect pronunciations. Whoppajuniors is very likely one of his accounts.

His CipherStream account is a response to my PGP post

Though he already has several accounts, WAT started creating additional accounts shortly after I posted this: https://web2.0calc.com/questions/register-for-alcumus#r2 (The thread is hidden, but you can read it.) WAT surmised that after nearly a year, his pipeline for spamming and trolling the forum with adulterated AoPS questions would likely close, one way or another.

The pipeline did close, or at least it became very restricted, after Herr Massow adjusted the parameters of the auto-moderator (It was during this event (though not as obvious): https://web2.0calc.com/questions/good-news-for-the-forum-and-i-m-lmao. [Minus 4 on that post –Yep, WAT is pissed!]

This neutered WAT and shortened his pecker, so now fucking the forum is much more difficult. I’m sure he is quite pissed. His easy, automated orgy is over; he now has to stand in line when he wants to fuck us. He will, because that is what he does. He likes it! And he’s obsessed!

You returned just a few days after the automated pipeline of adulterated AoPS questions (sewage) was closed. But now there are multiple troll accounts all controlled by a single troll, WAT Moriarty. You’ll be dealing with something well more complex than the math problems you’re use to solving. Though WAT is neutered, he is still automated, and worse, he is more hands-on now. Pace yourself, CPhill, and make use of Sisyphus’ bolder or you may wear out in a few weeks....
