A. 0.05%
B. 0.5%
C. 5%
D. 500%
E. 5000%


We might also try plugging in the answer choices.

We can start by writing "0.35 represents what percent of 0.007?" as "0.35 equals what percent of 0.007?"
Or "What percent of 0.007 equals 0.35?"
Or just: _____ of 0.007 = 0.35

First note that 100% of 0.007 = 0.007
So, we need a percent that's GREATER than 100%
ELIMINATE A, B, and C

Try answer choice D:
500% of 0.007 = 5 x 0.007 = 0.035
No good - eliminate D

By the process of elimination, the correct answer is

0.35 as a percent of 0.0007 is:

0.35/0.007 x 100 = 350/7 x 100 = 50 x 100 = 5,000 percent

Answer: E

E. 5000%



let say the percentage be x

so,

x% of 0.007 = 0.35

(\(\frac{x}{100}\))0.007 = 0.35

0.007 x = 35

x =\(\frac{35}{0.007}\)

x =\(\frac{35000}{7}\)

x = 5000%

Thus the best answer is E.
