Could you please give me the formula/show me how to figure the following: 962 Sq. Ft. is what percent of 2656 Sq. Ft.????? Thanks for your help Jon Sr. (older college student) 

Hi Jon, I read
as a mathematical sentence, that is an equation. The verb "is" is the equal sign, "percent" is per 100, "of" is multiplication and "what" is the unknown. With this view of your sentence it becomes
To solve for x multiply both sides by 100 and divide both sides by 2656 to get
so
