Answer:

0.15% of the players won the game.

Explanation:

To find percentage, you use the formula #p##o##r##t##i##o##n##/##w##h##o##l##e# #xx 100#.

In your case, the portion is 18 and the whole is 12,000.

Input these values into the formula so that #18/(12,000) xx 100#.

When calculated this equals #3/20#% or 0.15%
