    Percentage Problem Help

    I am trying to figure out:

    44.91 Units equals 59% of the total
    23.40 Units equals 41% of the total
    This would mean the 23.40 Units are worth more per Unit. I cant figure out how many percent more are they per Unit.

    The second question would be if I add 2.85 Units of the same value to the 23.40 Units for a new total of 26.25 what would the new percentages be?
    44.91=?% and 26.25=?%.

    Can you try the actual and exact problem statement? This version isn't quite making sense.

    I take it we are to assume that the "Units" in the first two statements are NOT the same, but the "Total" in the first two statements IS the same?

    If X is value per unit in the first Statement, then 44.91X/Total = 0.59.
    If Y is value per unit in the second Statement, then 23.40Y/Total = 0.41.

    We also have 44.91X + 23.40Y = Total

    From this, we can see that Y = 1.3337X

    This may or may not lead you to be able to answer the questions.
