When you have 63 houses to interview you have finished 28 what is the percentage you have completed?
This question is very poorly written and the meaning is ambiguous. First off, we must assume that it is indeed possible to interview a house. If the question is asking: If… you have a total of 63 interviews to conduct, what is the percentage you will have completed after finishing 28 interviews? The answer is 44.4% If the question is asking: After completing 28 interviews, you still have 63 remaining, what percent of total interviews have you completed? The answer is 30.7% Please show me how to get to the answer 44.4%. How do you figure it? Thanks. If you have completed 28 interviews out of 63, then 63 is the total and 28 is the portion of that total completed. So you want to know the proportion of interviews completed, which is completed portion (28)/total (63) ie. 28/63= 0.44... A percentage is a proportion scaled to be 'how many out of one hundred', so you simply mulitply the proportion (how much out of one) by 100. 0.44... * 100 = 44.4 (MORE)
