# 1 out 1000 is what percentage?

1 person out of 1000 people is what percentage?

Easy 10 points for the best correct answer!

Why is this so complicated that you have the multiple answers?

1000 people = 100%

500 people = 50%

100 people = 10%

What have we done each time? Moved one to the left and put a % sign.

Ergo, 1 people = 0.1%

Yes, 1 divided by 1000 is 0.001 but to convert to a percent you'd have to move the decimal 2 places right. Just like 500 divided by 1000 is 0.5 but 50%. Understand the reasoning?

I think it is Mortality rate.

I think it's 0.1%. It's ten times greater than 1 out of 100, which is 1%, so since it's ten times greater, the decimal on the percentage moves one spot to the left.

you just make the fraction 1 over 1000 and devide the top by the bottom (numerator by denominator) and u get the decimal 0.001 or one one thosandth and the answer is 0.001%
