A city employee collected survey data from 230 randomly selected residents. A total of 865 of these residents said that they thought the city should devote more city funds to repair roads. To the nearest percent, what is a good estimate of the percentage of all residents who thought this?

865/230 = 3.7%

Well   865/230 = 376 %      SO I think you may have your numbers incorrect?

Maybe    230 out of 836?  = 27.5 %

865/230 = 3.7 not 376.

You're probably adding extra zeroes, try it again! :)

So 2330/865 = 0.37

Multiply by 100 to get it in percent

0.37 x 100 = 37%
