Question:
A bus with a seating capacity of 60 people is 60% occupied. At the next
stop one-third of the people get off the bus and 3 people get on the bus.
The bus is now ___% occupied.

Hi Joe,

60% of 60 is

^{60}/_{100}
60 = 36 and
hence 36 of the seats are occupied. One-third of the 36 get off and three
more get on. How many are on the bus now? What fraction of 60 is this? Express
this fraction as a percent.
