Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Percent is a ratio out of 100. You are given a ratio of 8 out of 1600. You want to know what ratio out of 100 that equals. Set up a proportion: 8 out of 1600 equals x out of 100 \(\dfrac{8}{1600} = \dfrac{x}{100} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(1600x = 8 \times 100\) \(1600x = 800\) \(x = \dfrac{800}{1600} \) \(x = 0.5\) Answer: 0.5% You are correct.
