Total people = 70

People who played = 49

People who did not play = 70 - 49 = 21

Now 

% of people who play = People who play / total people       *     100

                                   = 49 / 70       *    100

                                   = 0.7    *    100

                                   = 70 %

Hence 70% people played the game.
