Divide: 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.

Hi Sara, What you do is divide 32 by 86 and that gives you the percent
of seniors on the football team

No, 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.
