36 - 12 = 24

find the percent of 24/36

You will get a decimal and then have to move it to places to the right to get the answer as a %.

First you should subtract 32-12 which equals 24 then make a fraction 24/36 then divide when you divide you should get 0.66 then multiply that number by 100 make it easier by just moving the decimal place 2 spaces to the right then that is your percentage which is 66%
