Given:
60 = the total number of members in the sports club
40 = number of boys of the club

Find:  Percent of the club that are girls.

Solution:
There are 60 total members, 40 boys, so the number of girls is obviously 20, because 60 - 40 = 20

This time we must find the percent of the club that are girls.
This also means - what percent of 60 is 20.

Percentage ÷ Base = Rate
20    ÷    60   = 0.33333...
Now, change  0.33333... to percent by multiplying by 100 and inserting the percent symbol

0.33333...  x 100 =      33. 333333......% or just 33.33%
