45/360X100 = 125.

125 can be written in mixed fraction as 12 1/2 that is 12 * 2 = 24, 24 + 1 = 25.

I think,

360 - 100%
180 - 50%
90 - 25%
45 - 12.5%.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

It is divided by 360 because is you added all the numbers in a pie chart it would equal 360 degrees.

Why it was divided by 360?

Arm said:   10 years ago
Should not the answer be 7.5% rather than 75%?

If 360 degrees is 100%, then 63 degrees is 17.5%. Similarly, 36 degrees is 10%.

The difference between 17.5%-10% = 7.5%.

Thanks for clarification.
