#### Explanation:

"Percent" means "per hundred". That is, you are being asked how many guests attended the wedding per hundred that were invited.

You are given the "per one hundred and twenty five" value

So to calculate the percent, we need to multiply this figure by

#104*100/125 = 104*(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(25)))*4)/(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(25)))*5) = 104*4/5 = 416/5 = 83.2#
