In the following statement, express the first number as a percentage of the second number. Apple's $2015$ revenue was $\$ 233$ million, compared to Walmart's $\$ 482$ million.

Solutions

VerifiedIn 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.

We will divide Apple's revenue by Walmart's revenue in $2015$.

$\frac{233}{482} = 0.4834024896$

Now, we will multiply the result by $100$.

$\begin{aligned} \left( 0.4834024896 \right) \cdot \left( 100 \right) &= 48.34024896 \\ & \approx 48.34 \end{aligned}$

Therefore, the $\$233$ million revenue of Apple is $48 \%$ of the $\$ 482$ million revenue of Walmart.
