Divide 1740 BY 3475 to find the percentage. Just by looking, I can tell you it will be just slightly more than 50% (1740 x 2 = 3480) The answer will be 0.5007. Round to .50 which is 50%
I suppose it depend on how the question was worded.Going back to my school days I would have had to give the exact answer of 50.071942%
You are absolutely right. No telling how exact they want things, rounded, or what.
