A gumball machine contains 51 blue gumballs 128 green gumballs and 93 red gumballs. What percentage of the gumballs that are blue?

First find the total number of gumballs. 51+128+93=272 Next, determine what fraction of the total represents the blue gumballs. 51/272=.1875 The fraction tells us what part of one gumball is represented by the color blue. However we were asked for a percentage (per=how many, cent=100 or how many for each 100). So we should multiply the fraction by 100. The answer then is .1875 multiplied by 100, or 18.75%. That means that if we only had 100 gumballs, 18.75 of those 100 would be blue.
