Mrs.Smith's class has 12 girls and 8 boys. What percent of he class are girls?

[#boys/girls+boys]*100 = percent

I didn't read the problem very carefully. The calculation above is percent boys. Percent girls is done similarly but use # girsl instead of # boys OR 100 - percent boys = percent girls.
