Best Answer

Think about the factors of 12 - 1, 12, 3, and 4. 3 is a factor of 12, right? So then think about how many times 3 goes into 12. 3 goes into 12 four times. So, 3 is 1/4 of 12. Then you simply divide 1 by 4, which is .25. Therefore, 3 is 25% of 12! :]

you can always use this equation to solve this kind of problems

total/variable = 100/answer

12/3 = 100/answer

answer = 100*3/12

answer = 25 percent
