The answer worked out to 73.17% seems incorrect.
150/205 * 100 = 30/41 * 100.
=> 3000/41= 74.63%.
Please clarify the correctness !

We have to multiply by 100% because acc to the question it is asked what percent of the total sales branches.

150/205 is both divided by 5 results 30/41 it gives 72.75 equal to 73% approximately.

150/205 * 100 = 30/41 * 100.
0.7317 * 100 = 73.17%.
