The ratio of the number of passengers that got off the bus compared to the original number of passengers is:

a) What is the ratio of the passengers who got on the bus at the stop compared to the new total then on the bus? Write your answer as a fraction, a decimal, and a percent.

In fractions that would be:

Written as a decimal, it would be 0.27 when it's rounded to the nearest hundredth. As a percent is would be 27% because I multiplied the decimal by 100.
