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$ $\times 100$.

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

Input these values into the formula so that $\frac{18}{12 , 000} \times 100$.

When calculated this equals $\frac{3}{20}$% or 0.15%
