Homework Help: math

Hello,

Here is a question with something i've never heard of.

These are the first two stages of a fractal known as the Sierpinski carpet. The carpet begins with a square (stage 1). The square is cut into 9 congruent squares and the middle square is removed (stage 2).

Draw stage 3 using the method described to get from stage 1 to stage 2.

To the nearest whole percent, what percent of the original square remains in stage 3? Show your work and explain your answer.
