A football team and percentage

by renee

A football team has 60 players. 42 of the players are seniors. What percentage of the team are seniors?

The percentage that are seniors is 42/60 = 7/10

Convert 7/10 into a percent by multiplying both the numerator and the denominator by 10.

7/10 × (10/10) = 70/100 = 70%

Therefore, 70% of the team are seniors.
