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. ]

Write the steps for converting an improper fraction to a mixed number. Include a numeric example along with your written steps. · Is it possible to have a percentage value that is greater than 100%? If yes, give an example. If no, why not? · Taken from page 281 of your text: Which of the following improper fractions are equivalent to "9"? Click HERE for the fractions 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. Read more: How to Convert to a Mixed Numeral | eHow.co.uk 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)? C. There are no answer choices to your question. ] (More)
