If a country with a population of 51,269,185 decreased by 457 people, what percent of the population is gone?

I used the is/of = percent/100

457/51,269,185 = x/100 =>

45,700 = 51,269,185x =>

45,7/51269,185 =

8.91

is it 8.91%? That seems too high. Or is it .00891%

    457 : 51,269,185 = x : 100

    Hence:

    x = (457 * 100) / 51,269,185 = 45,700 / 51,269,185 ≃ 0.000891%
