    Divide 68 by 76 and multiply that result by 100 this will give you the %

    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

    X is your percentage

    68/76 = n/100

    68 (100) = 76 n

    6800 = 76 n

    6800 divided by 76 = 76 n divided by 76

    89.47 = n

    Answer is 89.57 percent!

    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.

    68/76 = .8947

    .8947 X 100 = 89.47%

    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.
