• Start with what you do know. He got 68 out of 76 shots. So write 68 over 76. The number that yuo don't know is x - a percentage is how much out of 100. So your other equation is x over 100. So you have:

68 X

____ = _____

76 100

Than you cross multipy and divide.

100 X 68 = 6800

6800 divided by 76 = X

• 68/76 = n/100

68 (100) = 76 n

6800 = 76 n

6800 divided by 76 = 76 n divided by 76

89.47 = n

Use this formula anytime you are figuring percents. Once you have it down, you'll always be able to figure correct percentages.

• all you need to do is take the makes over attempts. so take 68 divided by 76 and you will get a decimal answer. take that answer times 100 to find the actual percent.

• ok. You put the 76 over a hundred, then put the 68 over a hundred.

Subtract them, then you will get 8 out of a hundred. Subtract 8 from a hundred and you will get 92% so his throwing percentage is 92%

GIVE ME THE 10.
