59px to %

Hi there, does anyone know exactly what 59px is in percentages?

Well we would need the width of the container that it is in. So lets say you have a container div of 800px, well to get the percentage you would take 59/800 which = 0.07375 so we just move the decimal to the right 2 places to get the percentage which is 7.375% to be exact. So just figure out the size of your container and use the formula.

Thanks, Casey!
