# 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?

##### 1 Answer

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#
