User: If fed ex laid off 900 of their 233,457 employees what percent was laid off?

Weegy: 0.39% is the answer.
In this case - take the number laid off (900) - and divide by the total (233,457)
This gives you the (decimal) fraction.
Multiply the decimal fraction by 100 to determine how many per 100 (the 'percent') so it would 900/233,457 = 0.003855099 times 100 to get the percent. So the answer is 0.385% or 0.39% johnlennons|Points 900|

User: if the price of shoes is 67.41 after a 6.9 % increase, what was the original price of the shoes?

Let x be the original price of the shoes, x + 6.9%x = 67.41 x + 0.069x = 67.41 1.069x = 67.41 x = 67.41/1.069 = 63.06 The original price of the shoes is 63.06
