First, lets put it into a fraction. 24 out of 30. 24/30. Fractions basically mean division, so divide 24 by 30. You get 0.8. Now, to convert it to percent, you have to move the decimal two places to the right. Fill in the 0 in the now empty space. The answer is 80%

so 24 questions out of 30
24/30
percent means parts out of 100 so x%=x/100
convert the bottom number to 100
multiply the whole thing by 10/10
240/300
multiply the fraction by (1/3)/(1/3)
80/100=80%
another way is
24/30
divide completely
0.80/1
multiply by 100/100 since bottom number must be 100
80/100=80%
answe ris 80%
