2. Divide each number by the total sum.
3. Multiply by 100% to get the answer.

Number 1. is probably wrong. The percentages don't sum up to 100. 20.3% + 69.9% = 90.2% (not 100%). Thanks.

If the numbers(148 and 509) are correct then percentages should be 22.5% and 77.5% respectively.

See working :

148 + 509 = 657.

(a.) (148/657) x 100% = 22.5%.

(b.) (509/657) x 100% = 77.5%.

Thank you.
