Answer:

#50%#

Explanation:

#62/124# as a percentage #= 62/124 * 100%#

#62/124 = 1/2# (numerator and denominator divided by #62#)

#1/2 * 100% = (1/2 * 100/1)%#

#(100/2)% = 50%#

#62/124 = 50%#

Answer:

#50%#

Explanation:

We don't know the percent so let's call it #x#

#x%(124)=62#

#x%# is the same as #x/100#

#x/100(124)=62#

#(x/100cancel((124)))/cancel124=62/124#

#x/100=62/124#

#x/100=1/2#

#x=100/2#

#x=50#

Add the percentage symbol

Percentage #=50%#
