The percentage of the total cost of 23 separate tickets that George saves by buying a season ticket is 23%.

### What are percentages?

A percentage is a way to describe a part of a whole. such as the fraction ¼ can be described as 0.25 which is equal to 25%.

To convert a fraction to a percentage, convert the fraction to decimal form and then multiply by 100 with the '%' symbol.

As the cost of the separate ticket is £24, and there are a total of 23 games, therefore, the total cost of the 23 games separate ticket can be written as,

Hence, the percentage of the total cost of 23 separate tickets that George saves by buying a season ticket is 23%.
