PERCENTAGE MEANS PER "CENT "

CENT MEANS 100

ON 36000 , IT IS 32

ON 100 , IT IS 100/36000 X 32 = 3200 / 36000 = 32/ 360 = 0.0889

ANSWER 0.0889%

Formula for percentage

Part/whole = %/100

your part is 32

whole is 36,000

32/36,000 = %/100

32/36,000 x 100% = 0.089%

"out of" means divide.32 / 36000 = how many hundredths?
