in order to find the answer you would have to put 57 over 100 and find the LCD

So heres how this works. You know gus answered 47 out of 57, or 47/57. And a percent is out of a hundred. you know the hundred but not the percent, so its like this-x/100. Multiply 47 times 100, and divide that by 57. What you end up with is his answer.
