In one particular suburb, there are 30 families that own a boxer. If there are a total of 50 families that own a dog in general, then what percentage of dog owners have a boxer?
To get percentages, take the part of a population that is being specified and divided that by the whole population and multiply that value by
So there are
#30/50#can be reduced to #3/5#and that gives us #.6#
When that value is multiplied by
#.6 * 100% = 60#
