Question

OF THE 200 PACKAGES OF BAGELS SOLD , 15 OF THEM ARE SESAME SEED BAGLES. WHAT PERCENT OF THE BAGEL PACKAGES SOLD ARE SESAMES SEED BAGELS

2 Answer

  • Write a proportion. x = variable/answer

    15              x
    200        100

    1500/200=7.5

    7.5%
  • 15 out of 200 is represented as 15/200 and to find the percentage we will use 100 and x because we don't know the percentage so it will be x/100. It will look like the picture. We get 1500 because we cross multiply. Then we divide by 200 and we get 7.5. Therefore it is 7.5%
