Answer:

#~~47.62 %#

Explanation:

Given: #60# is what #%# of #126#?

#is# means #=#; #" ""of" # means #xx#; #" "%# means #"of "100 = p/100#

#60 = p/100 xx 126#

#60/126 = p/100#

Using the cross product #a/b = c/d => a xx d = b xx c#

#60 xx 100 = 126 p#

#6000 = 126 p#

#6000/126 = p#

#p ~~47.62 %#

#color(blue)"A second way is to use " %/100 = "is"/"of"#

#p/100 = 60/126#

Use cross-product: #126 p = 60 xx 100 = 6000#

#p = 6000/126 ~~ 47.62 %#
