Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I had 10 marbles, 70% of it would be 7. If I had 40 wives, 50% of it would be 25. Notice that in order to get the value of a certain percentage, the total must be included. So if you had a total sample size of 1000, then 70% of it is 700. But what if I am actually looking at the 300 and not the 7000, then you would know what percentage it is (since per cent pertains to per 100) so 300. This can get more complicated, but it would be easy if you know how to solve it. \(\huge \frac{700}{1000} \times 100 \rightarrow \frac{group ~ of~ people~to~count}{total }\times 100\)
