Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

If Michael missed 6 oout of 50 free throws then he made:

#50 - 6 = 44#

Let's call #p# the percentage of free throws Michael made.

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100",

Therefore p% can be written as #p/100#.

Because Micheal made 44 out of 50 free throws we can write an equation to find #p# as:

#p/100 = 44/50#

#color(red)(100) xx p/100 = color(red)(100) xx 44/50#

#cancel(color(red)(100)) xx p/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(100))) = cancel(color(red)(100))color(red)(2) xx 44/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(50)))#

#p = color(red)(2) xx 44#

#p = 88#

Michael made #88/100# or #88%# of the practice free throws.
