# What does it mean 3.2 per 100

1. Employers have found that acquired knowledge can compensate for declines in cognitive efficiency.

2. In 2007 workers ages 25 to 54 were absent at a ratio of 3.2 per 100.

Please translate these two sentences into Chinese, thanks!!!

Update:

workers age 55 and over were absent with greater frequency, but barely-3.6 per 100.

with greater frequency 是說較高的頻率麼?

補：『 3.2 per 100』 = 32%

*per = by/for/to each; for every = (介.) 每一、每個

ex,

\$3.50 per person- 每人3.5元

40 cents per gallon- 每加侖40分錢

Sorry!

It's not 32% but 3.2%.

哈....謝謝你ㄋㄟ~

我數學太差了.....@x@"

"were absent "- 缺席的

I knew it. 但因為沒有上文，以為是引申為"失業"，真是不好意思~~>"

2."workers age 55 and over were absent with greater frequency, but barely-3.6 per 100"─

『...55歲以上的工作者缺席次數更為頻繁，不過那也僅佔其(那些55以上的工作者)3.6%而已。』

*"barely -3.6" = only 3.6 →負負得正

*"with greater frequency" → with frequency- (adv.) 頻繁地，greater- 更大的、更多的→『更為頻繁地』

=O !! 那照Ren*2這麼說來 請問"barely 3.6 per 100"怎麼說？在此barely相當於only嗎? @, @....

3Q~

BTY, "frequency" 在此打次數是因為中文唸起來較明瞭較順~

"workers age 55 and over were absent with greater frequency, but barely-3.6 per 100"

在這裡，“... absent with greater frequency, but barely... ”應連起來看，

... absent with greater frequency, but barely...

＝ ... absent with greater frequency, but only by a little...

意思是：3.6% 比起 3.2％ 缺席率（僅稍）高...

補：『 3.2 per 100』 = 32%

?_? 不對喔

3.2% 啦

你補充錯誤

2009-03-03 10:37:54 補充：

每100人就有3.2人失業。 (That's correct 加 1 分)

=P~ 怎麼可能變 32%... 這樣就變 32 人失業

補錯了..... 扣 1 分 ...

barely-3.6 per 100.

?_? 是不是只是一槓？

應該只是一槓... 不是 minus sign

They are absent about the same amount of time. In 2007, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, full-time workers ages 25 to 54 were absent at a ratio of 3.2 per 100, while workers age 55 and over were absent 3.6 per 100.

2009-03-03 23:41:57 補充：

frequency

次數也可以

這裡兩個解釋都說的過去，就是較高的比率會去請假

2009-03-03 23:47:44 補充：

barely-3.6 .... 不會負負得正啦。。。應該只是一槓 =P~

不然就是 typo 打錯字
