"She will reduce her percentage."
Translation:Ella va a reducir su porcentaje.
"Ella reduciría su porcentaje."
Why is that correct? Don't you need the "will" or "is going to" part?
How about this: "Ella va a reduciría su porcentaje." Is it correct?
Ir + a + Infinitive is a set formula to express simple future. if you use it then you must always follow the A with an infinitive, as stated by others. There are quite a few of these formulas I have learned (mostly outside of duo) and they really helped me be able to express myself correctly while still lacking in verb conjugations beyond present,past and imperative. A few examples are....
ir + a + inf (going to do something) Me voy a afeitar esta noche - I am going to shave tonight - The me is needed or it is unclear who I am going to shave, lol
acabar + de + inf (to just finished something)Acabo de comer - I just finished eating
volver + a + inf (to do something again)vuelves a hablar - you speak again
tener + que + inf (to have to do something)tengo que leer ahora - i have to read now
hay + que + inf (one must/there must do something)hay que estudiar - one must study
tratar + de + inf (to try to do something)trato de correr - I try to run
dejar + de + inf (to stop doing something)deja de comer - he/she/you/it stops eating
comenzar + a + inf (to start to do something)comenzamos a caminar - we start to walk
my sentences aren't that great but you will get the idea, hope this helps.
'va a' must be followed by an infinitive, and technically would be 'she is going to reduce'
Ok, I was Givin no heads up on this new way of referring to future without ir(voy, vas, va, van, vamos). Where does it indicate that she will reduce it, that Ira at the end of reducirá?
Yes, though you need not worry about it too much in this example because it the "tu" is 'your' not 'her' (products), so not correct here.
Why is it not redujere? It seems like that would be a better translation than "going to"
Hey, can anyone confirm for me that "va a" means both "going to" and "will". I just want to clarify.
