In this problem, we will convert the fraction with the first number as the numerator and second number as denominator to a percentage. We first divide, use calculator if needed, then multiply it to 100%. That is,

\begin{aligned} \frac{\233\text{ million}}{\482\text{ million}}&=0.48340249\\ &=0.48340249\times100\%\\ &=48.340249\% \end{aligned}

Hence, Apple's 2015 revenue is 48.34% of Walmart's 2015 revenue.
