Straight division. Biggest number over smallest number.

Big/Small= That number answer is the exact percent. Round up or down to the nearest. Or to 2 or 3 decimal placings.

What I did... I copied your questions numbers, big and pasted into my calculator online/computer and put the division sign then pasted the smaller number in then hit equals ( = ). You can do it to, or type the numbers in.

Good luck.

It is the number fanchised divided by the total number that is true.

but then you need to multiply the answer by 100 and put a % sign.

Are you sure melody?

Big/ small in this case. The 4,336,046 by "how many" 453,326, leaving us with how many times it fits in which givs 9.56496208%. Which also even by estimation looks right, since if it was rounded to 4,400,000 / 440,000 it would be 10%. I think you've looked at the question wrongly.

453326 / 4336046 x 100% = 10.45% correct to 4 significant figures.

This is exactly the same answer that I gave last time.

THIS ANSWER AND THE WORKING IS CORRECT.
