    Answer:59.9%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Percentage refers to you comparing the ratio of two variables to a 100%.For example, if the numbers of boys and girls in a class is 40 and 60 respectively, then the percentage of boys in the class is 40%.

    From the question a part ($1350) of the costs was charged on a credit card.The total vacation cost is $2252.

    Hence our ratio will be the cost charged on credit card divided by the total cost mathematically stated as follows;

    $1350/$2252 = 0.5994671403 .

    next we compare that to a 100% by multiplying by 100%.

    0.5994671403 * 100% = 59.9446714032%

    to round to nearest tenth, consider the second digit after the decimal point which is 4. “4” isn’t up to 5, so its rounded to 0 and added to the digit before it (9). hence our final answer is 55.9%.

    Have a great day
