You have 40 books on your bookshelf. if 16 are comic books, what percent of the books on your bookshelf are comic books? HELP!
16 divided by 40 times 100, do the math.
40% 16/40=x/100 cross multiply and solve for x.
this might make little sense, but trust me it works: divide 40 by 100, then multiply the answer from that by 16. that leaves you with 6.4, so just make that a percent by adding the symbol.
The answer would be 40 percent. You divide 40 by 160.
