What percent is 24 of 96?

1 Answer

Answer:

#24/96=0.25=25%#

Explanation:

Let's think about this problem this way:

We know that 50% of a number is the same as #1/2# of the number. And so what is #1/2# of 96?

  • #1/2xx96=48#, which is the same as

  • #0.5xx96=48#, which is the same as

  • #50%xx96=48#

Let's work with that last one for a minute. We can divide both sides by 96 to get:

#50%=48/96#

What we want to know is What percent of 96 is 24? Let's put the 24 in for the 48, and then do #24/96# to find the percentage:

#24/96=0.25=25%#
