There are 61 known moons. Mercury and Venus do not have moons, but each of the 7 other planets has at least 1. How do I find the % of total moons for each planet?
Earth - 1
Mars - 2
Jupiter- 16
Saturn - 18
Uranus - 15
Neptune - 8
Pluto - 1

Thanks for your help.

  1. Divide the number of moons for each planet by 61 and then put it in percent form.

    Example: Earth -- 1/61 = 0.016 = 1.6%
    Mars -- 2/61 = 0.0327 = 3.33%

  2. Thank you!
