1 of 2In 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,

$\begin{aligned} \frac{302}{538}&=0.56133829\\ &=0.56133829\times100\%\\ &=56.133829\% \end{aligned}$
