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.
