Question:

3 5/8 and 2 1/4 what is the percentage of 2 1/4 to 3 5/8.

Thank You

Hi Shirley,
2 ^{1}/_{4} = ^{9}/_{4} = ^{18}/_{8} and 3 ^{5}/_{8} = ^{29}/_{8}. Thus this question can be rephrased to "what percentage is 18 of 29?" ^{18}/_{29} = 0.6207. Thus 2 ^{1}/_{4} is 62.07% of 3 ^{5}/_{8}.

Cheers,

Penny
