# If Freya makes 4 of her 5 free throws in a basketball game, what is her free throw shooting percentage?

Jul 9, 2018

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:

$\frac{4}{5}$

To convert this to a percentage, we want the denominator to be $100$. Let's multiply this by $\frac{20}{20}$ to get

$\frac{80}{100}$, which is equal to 80%.

Hope this helps!
