Chapter 6 - Percent - 6.2 Percents and Fractions - 6.2 Exercises: 35

Answer

46%

Work Step by Step

$\frac{23}{50}=\frac{p}{100}$ We can take the cross products to solve for p (where p is the percentage representation of the given fraction). $23\times100=50\times p$ $2300=50p$ Divide both sides by 50. $\frac{2300}{50}=\frac{50p}{50}$ $p=46$%
