(Part / total) x 100

(30 / 90) x100 = 33.33%

Divide 30 by 90 = 0.333 recurring, X0.333 recurring by 100 = 33.3 %

£30/£90 = 3/9

3/9 can be simplified to 1/3 since the common multiple is 3. So (3/3 = 1) and (9/3 = 3) resulting in 1/3.

1/3 of 100% is 33.3% recurring (33.3333333%)

You would express it as a fraction.

So 30/90

Simplifies to...

1/3.

1/3 = 33.33%

30 out 90 is a third, so as a percentage it would be 33.333(recurring).

Step 1: divide 30 by 90

30 ÷ 90 = 0.334

Step 2: multiply your answer by 100

0.334 x 100 = 33.4%

Step 1: place the numerator (£30) above the denominator (£90) to form a fraction - £30/£90


Step 2: divide £30 by £90 (=0.33333333)


Step 3: multiply the result by 100 (33.33333333333)


Step 4: round the result up where relevant

I would imagine every £10 as a unit of 1 so that would mean that £90 would be 9 units and since a per cent means "per 100" so 3 units over 9 units times 100 would give us our answer
