Thanks That's correct. Think of it this way: 19/100 = 19% 75/100 = 75% 250/100 = 250% So, 1000/10 = 10,000/100 = 10,000% Cheers, Brent _________________ Brent Hanneson â€“ Creator of GMATPrepNow.com Use my video course along with Sign up for free Question of the Day emails And check out all of these free resources GMAT Prep Now's comprehensive video course can be used in conjunction with Beat The GMATâ€™s FREE 60-Day Study Guide and reach your target score in 2 months!

Math is all about patterns, and the 'rules' never change - so once you define how some simple examples work, then you can use that knowledge to define how a trickier-looking example works. In this case, we needed to define how fractions convert to percents; once that pattern is defined, answering the given question becomes a lot easier.

It's not the best worded problem, though, since %s are usually taken from some base (e.g. "1000/10 is what percent of x?"). Simply saying "what percent is 1000/10" is a little unnatural.
