For example, $120\%$ is equal to $120$ parts per $100$. How can you have $120$ parts per $100$? But rest assured, these are very possible. The good news is you solve them the exact same way (by dividing by $100$). </p>
<p>For example, if it is claimed that the number of adults in a room is $200\%$ that of children, you would do the following:</p>
<p>$$\frac{200}{100}=\frac{2}{1}$$</p>
<p>That means that the ratio of adults to children is $2$:$1$.</p>
