12.5%

Step-by-step explanation:

In order to find the percentage the worker spent traveling, we can make us of the following ratio: where number is how many hours he spent traveling, ammount is the total ammount of hours he reported and percent is the percentage we want to find. So we can solve the ratio for the percent, so we get: now, we need to find the total amount of hours he spent traveling, this is gotten by adding the provided data:

6hrs+5hrs=11hrs

next we need to find the total amount of hours reported:

42hrs+46hrs=88hrs

so now we can substitute the data the problem provided us with: which yields:

percent=12.5%
