Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Let's call the percent we are looking for #p#.

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore p% can be written as #p/100#.

So we can write and solve for #p#:

#p/100 = 36/90#

#color(red)(100) * p/100 = color(red)(100) * 36/90#

#cancel(color(red)(100)) * p/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(100))) = 3600/90#

#p = 40#

#color(red)(40%)# of 90 is 36
