    Percent word problem; equation

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if someone can just give me the equation of how to solve the following word problem:

    The population of City Alpha is 694,960. Of that total, 449,878 people resides in the suburbs. Threfore, 64.7% of Alpha's population is subrban. Now, 20,772 people are foreign born and 674,188 are native born. In addtion, 437,235 native born reside in the suburbs and 12,643 foreign-born reside in the suburbs.

    What I'm basically trying to find out is the percentage of suburban reidents of where the native-bron reside.

    I appreciate your help!

    Thanks,
    Greg

    What equation? This seems like a fact you have to look up. There's no info provided to make an equation.
