Question

There were 500 animals at an animal shelter. On Saturday, 20 of the dogs and 15 of the cats were adopted. What percentage of the animals were adopted that day?

10%

5%

35%

7%

  1. Answer:
    7%
    Step-by-step explanation:
    First, let’s add the 20 dogs and 15 cats together to find the total number of animals adopted
    20 + 15 = 35 animals adopted
    We cand do 35 ÷ 200 to find how much of a percent 35 is of 500
    35 / 500 = 0.07
    Multiply this number by 100 to get a percent
    0.07 × 100% = 7%
    7% of the animals
