i keep getting to wrong answer
1) Mental math approach:
15 is 1/4 of 60, and 1/4 is 25%. So, 15 is 25% of 60.
2) Standard approach:
15 = x% *60
x% = 15/60 = 25%

You can also set this up as a ratio ( my favorite for this type of problem)
15/60 = x/100
cross multiply: 60x = 1500
now, divide both sides by 60 to isolate the variable x
= 60x/60 = 1500/60
x = 25
your answer is 25%
100 / 60= 1.667
1.667 x 15 = 25
25% is your answer.
