Percent of candidates admitted = Percent of Math SAT score more than 700 and admitted + Percent of Math SAT score less than 700 and admitted

$$= 36 \times 0.34 + (100-36) \times 0.16$$

$$= 22.48$$

Percentage of admitted applicants that had a Math SAT of 700 or more $$= 36\times\frac{0.34}{22.48}$$

$$= 0.55 \times 100$$

$$= 55 \%$$
