There are two approaches:
 
1.  The direct way is to subtract 28 from 58 to determine the number of blue cars, then divide that number by the total number and multiply by 100% to find the percent of blue cars.
 
i.e.  58 - 28 = 30.  30/58 times 100%.
 
2.  The indirect way is to divide 28 by 58 and multiply by 100% to find the % of white cars, and subtract from 100%.
 
I hope this helps.
