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.
