I need to know how to calculate what percentage of a number is to another.

let me make that clearer, 35 is what percent of 48? how is that calculated?

What you are asking is this:

35 is to 45 as x is to 100

or

35/48=x/100

solve for x

x=.729

Now to get % you must multiply x by 100 to get 72.9%
