Answer:

#80%#

Explanation:

To express one quantity as a percent of another:

#"fraction" xx 100%#

#48/60 xx 100%#

#4/5 xx 100%#

#80%#

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You could also calculate this by making the denominator into 100.

#60 xx 1 2/3 = 100#

#48/60 xx (1 2/3)/(1 2/3) = 80/100 = 80%#
