Answer:

#70%#

Explanation:

We can also ask this as "56 is what percent of 80?#

Dividing #56/80 # will give decimal answer of #0.70#

Change it into a percentage by #xx 100%#

#56/80 xx 100% = 0.70 xx 100% = 70%#

We could also have worked with equivalent fractions where one fraction has a denominator of 100.

#56/80 xx 1.25/1.25 = 70/100 = 70%#
