    173 + 27 + 15 = Total beans

    Divide 173 over total beans

    Divide 27 over total beans

    Divide 15 over total beans

    Round each however far you are told to round hopefully just 2 places but if it is 3 or 4 round there.

    Per cent means per 100, as there are 100 cents in 1 dollar.

    To get percents you take the decimal answers you get and multiple each by 100.

    Then use this % sign to show they are percentages.

    All percents added together should equal 100 percent in this case.

    % kidney = [173/(173+27+15)] x 100 = 80.5 %

    % pinto = ....

    % white = ...

    Add 173 + 27 + 15 to get a total.

    Take each bean and divide by the total.
