37.03%

#### Explanation:

Sale price of the house = $750,000 Agency's fees = 9% of sale price So, agency's fees =$750,000 xx (9/100) = $67,500 Note: 9% is written as $\frac{9}{100}$in calculations. Mr. Johnson's commission =$25,000

This commission he got from the agency's fees of $67,500, which, in other words, is, Mr. Johnson got $25,000 from the agency's fees of \$67,500.

Percent of Agency fees received by Johnson

= (25000/67500) xx 100%

= 37.03%

Note: when finding percent, the total amount comes in the denominator and the part of the total amount comes in the numerator and then they are divided and the answer is then multiplied by 100% to get percent.
