Jun 17, 2018

Assuming you meant what percentage is $30$ meters of $200$ meters:
color(white)("XXX")color(blue)(15%)

#### Explanation:

$30$ meters of $200$ meters means
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX")(30" meters")/(200" meters}}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} = \frac{30}{200} = \frac{3}{20} = \frac{3 \times 5}{20 \times 5} = \frac{15}{100}$

That is $30$ meters of $200$ meters is $15$ parts per $100$ (or $15$ per cent [since "cent" means "hundred"])
