To solve this, you would divide x by y, and multiply by 100.

(x/y)*100 = Percent of y

IE:

if x=3 and y=4

(3/4)*100

.75*100= 75%

3 is 75% of 4.

By formula, x/y*100 = Percentage. 6/8*100 = 75% ie) The formula for percentile value is x/y *100 where X is the part of y for which percentage needs to be known, and Y is our standard. eg) What percent is is 3 of 8. 3 is our 'x' of which value needs to be known, 8, or 'Y' is our standard. 3/8*100 = 37.5%

### The vertex of this parabola is at (-2, -3) When the x-value is -1, the?

Y=a(x-h)+k is the vertex formula. Since the vertex is at (-2,-3) this parabola has the equation: y=a(x+2)^2-3 We can plug in x=-1 but we really need to know a, to solve for y. ( we can solve it, but we will have an a in the solution)
