92% (46/50 x 100)

46/50=?/100 So how many 50’s in 100 = 2 do 2 times 46 = 92 so 92 %

46/50 = 92%.

50 is 1/2 of 100%, so multiply by 2.

Just divide 46 by 50 = .92 or 92%

92 %.

46 over 50 = x over 100.

cross multiply

4600 = 50x

92 = x

In other words, 46 is what percent of 50?

Here, x=percent (unknown), is=46 (“46 is”), of=50 (“of 50”). We have:

x/100=46/50

Cross multiply:

x*50=100*46

50x=4,600

x=92 (answer)

92%
