A lot of detail given to help understanding. Normally a calculation of this type would only take a few lines.

A percentage is essentially just another type of fraction, but it differs from other fractions in that the denominator, or bottom number, is always 100.

However, since the bottom number (denominator) must equal 100 in order for this to be a percentage, we write it as a "equivalent fraction."

Multiply both sides by 100 times the color red.
