24x = 600

x = 600/24

x = 25 %

Another method

1) What per cent of 750 meters is 125 meters ?

Solution :
Required % = (125 x 100)/ 750

= 12500/750

= 500/30

= 50 /3

∴ Required % = 50/3 = 16.66 %

2) Express 18 hours as a per cent of 3 days.

Solution :
One day = 24 hours

∴ 3 days = 3 x 24 = 72 hours.

Let x % of 3 days as 18 hours.

x% of 72 hours is 18 hours

(x/100) . 72 = 18

72x/100 = 18

Cross multiply

72x = 100 . 18

72x = 1800

x = 1800/72

x = 25%
