Question: hi

If i order 700 lines in total, 500 lines on order A and 200 lines on order B how bo i work out the percentage of lines ordered on order A



If there are 700 line in total and 500 are on order A then five-sevenths of the lines are on order A. Five-sevenths ( 5/7) as a decimal fraction is 0.714 and hence the proportion of the lines that are on order A is 0.714. To express this as a percentage you need to multiply by 100 to get 71.4% of the lines are on order A.
