Chapter 6 - Percent - 6.3 Using the Percent Proportion and Identifying the Components in a Percent Problem - 6.3 Exercises: 51

Answer

$50\%$, or half, of the students work part time.

Work Step by Step

We are told that out of 8600 students, 4300 work part time. We can find out the percentage that this corresponds to by dividing: $\frac{4300}{8600}=\frac{43}{86}=0.5=50\%$ Thus $50\%$, or half, of the students work part time.
