If 1,790 Mega Watts of power, out of the 3,000 Mega Watts generated by a power utility, reach the destination, what percentage of the generated power reaches its destination?
1,790  3,000 = 1,210
1,790 divided by 1,210 = 1.4
Answer 1.4% Unsure

3000 is the generated power; 1790 is the amount reaching the destination.
1790/3000 = ?

How can you divide 1790 by 3,000 and get almost 2?

1.98 is almost 2. When I divide 3,000 by 1790 I get 1.67 plus a row of numbers after that.
