The percents is___%
Jamar/Elliot -- please don't switch screen names.
54/900 = x
Solve for x
So i'm suppose to divide 54 into 900?
Nope -- the other way around.
Divide 900 into 54. Your answer will be a decimal.
No -- your answer should be a decimal that converts to less than 10 %
Right! 0.06 = 6%
54 patients out of a total of 900 patients = 6 %.
