    TotalTickets sold is 200

    winning percentage is 1/200/100 = 0.00005%

    1/200 x 100% = 0.5% chance to win 1 ticket..//

    I agree with Zirp: how many prizes are there???

    Assuming only 1:

    1/200 *(100%) = 5%

    Notes: Notice I multiplied by 100%? 100% =1 so this is the correct way to convert to percentage!

    1 in 200

    or

    1/200

    to convert to percentage

    1/200 x 100

    =100/200

    =1/2

    =0.5%

    1 / 200

    You do know how to convert a fraction to a percent I assume.
