Hint:

### 1. When a certain quantity is divided into 100 equal parts and a certain part of it is to be expressed in terms of the whole quantity, that portion is called as a percent, represented with a % sign.

2. Percentage of pizza left for Patricia's brother = Number of pieces left for him/ Total number of pieces * 100.

3. Total number of pieces in a pizza = Number of pieces had by Patricia + Number of pieces had by her brother.

## The correct answer is: 75%

### Given-

Number of pieces had by Patricia = 2

Total number of pieces in the pizza = 8

To find-

Percentage of women

Solution-

We know that-

Total number of pieces in a pizza = Number of pieces had by Patricia + Number of pieces had by her brother.

∴ 8 = 2 + Number of pieces had by her brother

∴ 8 - 2 = Number of pieces had by her brother

∴ 6 = Number of pieces had by her brother ............................. (Equation i)

Percentage of pizza left for Patricia's brother = Number of pieces left for him/ Total number of pieces * 100

∴ Percentage of pizza left for Patricia's brother = 6 / 8 * 100 ................................. (From Equation i)

∴ Percentage of pizza left for Patricia's brother = 75%

Final Answer- Option 'd' i.e. '75%' is the correct answer to the given question.

We assume that the portion of pizza that Patricia had i.e. 2/8 represents 2 pieces of the total 8 pieces in the pizza.

i.e. we assume tat there were total 8 pieces in the pizza.
