# Of the 600 workers at a factory, 8.5% belong to a union. How many workers are in the union?

**Solution:**

Given number of workers is 600 and 8.5% belong to a union

Percentage means parts out of 100

⇒ Number of workers = 600 × (8.5%)

⇒ Number of workers = 600 × (8.5/100)

⇒ Number of workers = 600 × 0.085

⇒ Number of workers = 51

Therefore, there are 51 workers in the union.

## Of the 600 workers at a factory, 8.5% belong to a union. How many workers are in the union?

**Summary:**

Of the 600 workers at a factory, 8.5% belong to a union then number of workers are 51.
