    you might see a 98 meaning you got 98 questions correct out of 100 ---- 100 coicedentally it also means that you got 98 percent as you score

    98 <--- % out of --- 100 <--- number of problems this is synonymous when it is # % out of #

    i think she/he has to say \[\frac{ 85 }{ 100 }\] and multiply it by 60

    as i said in my examples 98 < --- correct --- = percentage yield 100 <--- # prob. you want # correct simple 60 <--- #prob --- = correct 85 <--- percent yield

    "point" 98 (or any number) becomes a percent when the decimal space is moved back 2 places .98

    therefore 98 --- = .98 = 98% 100
