7. 72 is what percent of 480? Write and solve an equation to solve the problem.

Step 1. First, I will write out the equation.
part = percent x whole

Step 2. Now, fill in the parts…
72 = p x 480

Step 3. I will simply divide 72 by 480, which will be 0.15.

Step 4. The decimal can be converted to a percent by simply multiplying by 100. In that case, 0.15 x 100 = 15%.

So, 15% of 480 is 72.
