Answer:

#75%# of the students passed the test.

Explanation:

If #8# students out of #32# failed the test, it means that #(32-8)# or #24# passed the test.

To calculate the percentage value #(x)#, we write the equation:

#32xxx/100=24#

Multiply both sides by #100/32#.

#x=24xx100/32#

#x=3cancel24xx100/(4cancel32)#

#x=3xx(25cancel100)/(1cancel4)#

#x=3xx25#

#x=75#
