Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one way to isolate x is multiply both sides by 100 > (7/17) * 100 = x / 100 * 100. therefore the left side is (7/17)*100 = x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so you can solve for 7/17. that would yield a decimal once you do the division. once you have the decimal, you then multiply that value by 100 to obtain the percentage

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can see that 7/17 + 10/17 = 17/17 which is 1. which would be 100%. Here we look at 7/17 which is .411767, which is 41.1767%. you see that multiplying .411767 by 100 moves the decimal point to the right
