Just add the numbers. What do you get?

But I'd want to see why you are adding these; it's likely you are doing the wrong thing. Please show the entire problem for which you are doing this.

It would help to know what these are percentages OF.

Please reply with the complete text of the exercise, along with a clear listing of your thoughts and efforts thus far.

Thank you!

To find the overall percentage of the given values, you need to add them up and then divide the result by the total number of values and multiply by 100.

So, 80% + 66% + 53% + 53% + 73% + 73% equals 398%.

To find the overall percentage, you need to divide 398% by 6 (the total number of values):

398% / 6 = 66.33%

Therefore, the overall percentage of these values is approximately 66.33%.

No, that would give the average percentage, not the total percentage.

But the OP may be asking for something else, which might, depending on what the percentages mean, be the average. Or it might be something else entirely. We don't have enough information.
