123 is what percent of 321?
321/123=2.609756098 which rounds to 2.6%
2.6%= answer
asked by

wrong in so many ways.
First, 1.00 is 100%
.609 = 60.9%
so, 2.608 = 260.9%
But you read the question wrong. You know that 2 is 50% of 4, right?
So, you divide 2/4 = 0.5 = 50%
But you divided 321 by 123. Surely you could see that 2.6% is a totally unreasonable answer.
Actually, you should have divided 123/321 = 0.383 = 38.3%
Don't assume that just because you have arrived at an answer, it is correct. Take a step back and see whether it makes sense.posted by Steve
