Q:
# What percent of the first 10 natural numbers are prime numbers?

Accepted Solution

A:

Alright, so the first 10 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Since a prime number is only divisible by 1 and itself and greater than 1, our answers are 2, 3, 5, and 7. That's 4 numbers, or 4/10=0.4 of the 10. Since percentage is based out of 1, we can multiply 0.4 by 100 to get 40%
