#### Answer

The answer is 45%

#### Work Step by Step

Let X be the number we are looking for.
What percent of 80 means X $\times$ 80.
So, this question translates to:
36 = X $\times$ 80
Divide both sides by 80.
X = 0.45
To turn 0.45 into a percentage, we multiply it by 100%.
So, 0.45 × 100% = 45%
