out of 117 people, if m=55 and f=62, what is each percentage of 117
m=47% f=53%if: 117 - 100% 55 - x% then x=100x55/117=47 x=47%if 117 - 100% 62 - x% then x = 100x62/117=52.9=53 x=53%
Since percents are suppose to be out of a hundred you can do it like a ratio:117/100 = 55/n55x100 = 117n5500 = 117n5500/117 = n =47.009117/100 = 62/n62x100 = 117n6200 = 117n6200/117 = n = 52.991which is pretty much what the other person did, i just showed more steps.
