I need to know how to calculate what percentage of a number is to another.


let me make that clearer, 35 is what percent of 48? how is that calculated?


What you are asking is this:

35 is to 45 as x is to 100
or

35/48=x/100
solve for x
x=.729
Now to get % you must multiply x by 100 to get 72.9%
