**First, lets find out the percent of workers:**

We have the air conditioning will lay off 45 of its 1,215 workers.

Divide 45 with the 1,215 workers gives us the percent of workers.

$\begin{align*} \text{Percent of workers} &= \frac{45}{1,215}\\[10pt] &= 3.7\% \end{align*}$

Hence, the percent of workers layoff is **3.7%**
