C.

D.

Correct Answer C. 100
Explanation Percent means out of 100. It is a way of expressing a fraction or a ratio out of 100. For example, if something is 50%, it means it is half of the whole, or half of 100. Similarly, if something is 75%, it means it is three-fourths of the whole, or three-fourths of 100. Therefore, the correct answer is 100 because percent refers to dividing a quantity into 100 equal parts.

Nick played basketball against Mr. Casarella. He made 8 baskets for every 12 shots that he took. How many baskets would he make if he took 60 shots?
A.
24 baskets
B.
35 baskets
C.
40 baskets
D.

Explanation If Nick made 8 baskets for every 12 shots, it means he has a shooting percentage of 8/12 or 2/3. To find out how many baskets he would make if he took 60 shots, we can set up a proportion: 8/12 = x/60. Cross-multiplying, we get 12x = 480, and dividing both sides by 12, we find that x = 40. Therefore, Nick would make 40 baskets if he took 60 shots.
