After a good dinner he registered numbers and he have notice that from all the lights that in this city he don't count LED contains 2%.

What percentage of lights in a city John counted?

Correct result:

p =  50 %

Solution:

0.01n/(np/100 n)=0.02 0.01/(1p/100)=0.02 1=2 (1p/100) 0.5=p/100 p=0.5 100=50%
