In percentage, 100% is the basis. 12% is 12/100 or simplified to 6/50 100% - 12% = 88% of the students in class are right handed. Assuming the number of students in class is 100. Then, 12% of the class is 12 and 88% of the class is 88.  Comparing 12% and 88% it is clear that there are more right-handed students in class than there are left-handed students.

12% = 12/100 = (12/4) / (100/4) = 3/25 100% -12%= 88% Because 88%> 12%, there are more right-handed students.  The fraction of the students who are left-handed is 3/25~
