Hi Lynn,

What percentage is 1 man in 20 men? How many men in 1 hundred men is (1 man in 20 men) be?

Sincerely,

Angel

divide 1 by 20 = .05 = 5%

5% of 100 is 5 men.

An easy way to look at this is to take 10%, because that's a lot easier to see (you just take off a zero), then cut that in half. 10% of 20 is 2, half of that (or 5%) is 1. 10% of 100 is 10, half of that is 5.
