If there were 150 animals, of which 73 were rabbits and the rest are chickens.. What percentage of the animals were chicken?
Is it 48%

No.
More than half are chickens.

73 divided by 150 comes out to be about 49%.
What am I doing wrong

Carefully read the first sentence in your problem. Then read the question.

So then I take 150 subtract 77 and get 51%

(150  73) / 150 = 0.51 = 51%
