The football team has 86 players. Thirty-two of those players are seniors. What percent of the football players are seniors? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

    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

  • math -

    2/3=.66
    .66*86=57%

  • math -

    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.
