# Question 3c302

Jan 23, 2017

56%# of the students are men.

#### Explanation:

Knowing that $14$ out of $25$ students are men, we calculate the percentage ($x$) as follows:

$25 \times \frac{x}{100} = 14$

Multiply both sides by $\frac{100}{25}$.

$x = 14 \times \frac{100}{25}$

$x = 14 \times \frac{4 \cancel{100}}{1 \cancel{25}}$

$x = 14 \times 4$

$x = 56$
