How does passive transport differ from active transport?

Passive transport involves carriers, channels, or direct diffusion through a membrane.
This type of transport always operates from regions of greater concentration to regions of lesser concentration.
No external source of energy is required. [ In active transport it is possible to go against the concentration gradient.
In active transport, a source of energy is required to move the carrier

and its materials. ]

· Is it possible to have a percentage value that is greater than 100%? If yes, give an example. If no, why not?

Show the mathematical verification for each one that you feel is equal to "9"
**Weegy:** A. In an improper fraction, the top number, or numerator, is larger than the bottom number, or denominator, making the value of the fraction greater than one. [ You can simplify an improper fraction into a mixed number, which is a whole number followed by a fraction of less than one. The process results in a number that is easier to comprehend, and involves simple division and substitution.
Steps to convert improper fraction to a mixed number ; 1. Divide the numerator of the fraction by the denominator. As an example, assume an improper fraction of 17/3. So 17 divided by 3 is 5 with a remainder of 2.
2. Substitute the remainder of the result from Step 1 for the numerator of the original fraction. In the example, the substitution yields a new fraction of 2/3.
3. Place the new fraction from Step 2 to the right of the whole number result of the division from Step 1 to get the mixed-numeral equivalent of your improper fraction. In the example, the mixed numeral equivalent of 17/3 would be be
5 2/3.

B. No , 100% is the total and it is always wrong to express a percentage greater than this or to use a calculation that will yield greater than 1(00%). Per Cent means per 100 and anything greater is wrong, it is a mathematical term for a ratio calculation where the largest value is always the total (100%).
"Percentages larger than 100 can be meant literally (such as "a family must earn at least 125% over the poverty line to sponsor a spouse visa")."
is exactly the kind of statement that is quite wrong and also utterly misleading, what does this mean - poverty line + 25% or poverty line + 125% (which is what it actually states)?
