So the question is what % of 480 is 22?

100 * (22/480)

Shouldn't you calculate the percentage on the total number of searches (22/(22+480)) and (480/(22+480))

Nope...just 22/480=.04 or as poster #2 said, 100*22/480 = 4%

If you wanted to know what percentage the 22 searches is of the total searches, then you'd do 22/(22+480)

"what % of 480 is 22"

What: w

%: /100

of: *

480: 480

is: =

22: 22

w/100*480=22

Apply basic algebra:

w*4.8=22

w=22/4.8

w=4.58(3)

(the (3) means an 3 repeats infinitely.)
