Q:
# A charity sent out 700 fundraising letters and received 210 contributions in response. What was the percent of response?

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the answer, you have to make a proportion. 210 out of 700, or 210/700 is equal to x/100. So, 210/700=x/100. Then to solve the proportion, you must cross multiply. 210 times 100 is 21,000. Then, you must divide 21,000 by 700, which is 30. The 30 represents 30/100, which is 30%

The answer is 30%.

The answer is 30%.
