**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 5:57pmDivide: 32/86 = ?

Change the decimal to a percent by moving the decimal point over two places to the right. Or multiply the decimal by 100.

**Lynnette**, Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 5:59pmHi Sara, What you do is divide 32 by 86 and that gives you the percent

of seniors on the football team

.66*86=57%

**Lynnette**, Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 6:05pmNo, it's not 57%. divide 32 by 86 and multiply by 100. If rounding to the nearest whole number, you get 37% which makes sense since 32 seniors is a bit less than half (50%) of the whole team.
