Answer:

#80%#

Explanation:

We can construct a fraction in which the numerator is how many shots she makes, and the denominator is how many shots she took overall.

We now have the following fraction:

#4/5#

To convert this to a percentage, we want the denominator to be #100#. Let's multiply this by #20/20# to get

#80/100#, which is equal to #80%#.

Hope this helps!
