The coach of a local basketball team says that her team scored 40 points in the first game and 60 points in the second game. What percent of the first game score is the second game score? Sorry, I'm not good with percents. Just learning it.

    So think of this as a fration. In this case, 60 would be equal so than it is 40/60

    Then you just divide the top from the bottom. that gives you .666666666... so just round that to the nearest hundredth. your final answer is .67!

    also since 40/60 is a big fraction you can deduce it to 2/3. This still will equal .6666666...

    Hmm, okay thanks. 40/60 as a percent would be something like 66.6% repeating right? That is not one of my options. These are my only options 130%, 150%, 110%, 170%. Thanks for the answer!

    yes it should be 66.6%. you should talk to your teacher about that.

    Hmm, as I am currently home-schooled for some issues, I unfortunately cannot ask a teacher about it. Thanks anyways. xx
