**Answer: 23 is 12.5% of 184**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**let p be the percent value of 23/184**

**set up the equation using the info we have,**

**it says "23 of 184" or known otherwise 23/184**

**now we dont know the percent so we can do p/100**

**now that we have the info put together we can say that**

**23/184=p/100**

**now with the equation, we then cross multiply. multiplying the numerator with the denominator on the other side of the equationa and vis-versa. now with that, we have 23 x 100=184p.**

**turn this into 2300=184p**

**now divide 184 on both ends to only have p left and what it equals.**

**2300/184=184p/184 **

**dividing 184 by 184p with cancel out leaving p.**

**now our end result**

**12.5=p**

**meaning that 23 is 12.5% of 184. **

**(sorry for this being long, this is my first time doing this :P)**

if we take 184 as the 100%, what is 23 off of it in percentage?
