Figuring a PercentageDate: 5/24/96 at 15:24:17 From: Janean Lotz Subject: Percentages If there are 300 kids at a store, what percentage of them are at a supermarket if it is 3 times as much? Date: 6/5/96 at 21:46:59 From: Doctor Jodi Subject: Re: Percentages Percentages are fractions over 100. That is, 5 percent is 5/100, 78.9 percent is 78.9/100, etc. So "as many" is 100/100 or 100 percent "twice as many" is 200/100 or 200 percent "half as many" is the same as 50/100 or 50 percent Now can you figure out the answer to your question?
