    Re: I need help with a percentage problem

    First off, we need to work out what 1% of 783 is. We can do this by multiplying 783 by 0.01 (1%).
    783 x 0.01 = 7.83

    Next, we divide 908 by 1% of 783, in order to find out how many 1%s of 783 fit into 908.
    908/7.83 = 115.96
    Therefore, 908 is 115.96% of 783.

    We can check this by doing 783 multiplied by 115.96/100 (115.96%), which gives us 908.
