    @Sara - Which region is this about?

    Well done @LaszloMark

    FYI, we don't use a comma to mark the decimal place, we use a full stop. So, the answer would be 57.14%.

    @Lynne Oh, sorry, my bad. In Hungary we write comma to mark decimal place not full stop.

    We also use a full stop (or a period) to mark the decimal point, but several countries use a comma.
