    About 74%? I don’t know i didn’t use a calculator. So i guess >/=70:<80. Somewhere in that zone

      He asked for an equation, not a solution 

      And 60/80 = 6/8 = 3/4 = 75% 

      Don't need no calculator

    Just assume that 60 is x% of 80. We have, now, to find the value of x.

    We have x% of 80  =  60

    => (x/100) of 80   =   60  ............ ANSWER

    ........ x

    => -------- of  80  =  60 

    ..... 100

    ........ 80 * x

    => ------------  = 60

    .....  100

    =>  80 x  =   60 * 100

    ............. 60 * 100  ........ 600

    =>  x  = ------------  =   -------------  =  75

    .................. 80 ..............  8

    That is 60 is 75%  of 80   ................... Answer

      This is an extremely complicated way to calculate it. 60/80 is the same sum and much, much quicker.

    The key here is understanding how a percentage is calculated. It uses the basic formula: 𝐏 = 𝐁 𝐱 𝐑. Just fill in the pieces you have and then solve for the unknown variable. So you have to ask yourself the 60 would be your ______ and 80 would be your _____.
