Please recheck your numbers.
72% of 465 = 334.8

I shorten the question, but the word problem is stated exactly as this - the shaded area of the chart represents the number of Acme employees who bring their children to day-care centers before work.if there are 465 employees at Acme, how many do not bring their children to day-care centers before coming to work.
The shaded area is 72%
