Can someone help me in this code:

<cfoutput query="GetAllAnswers">
<cfif #GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes# is not 0>
<cfset Percentage= lsnumberformat(((
#GetAllAnswers.Results#/
#GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes#)*100),
"999.0")>
<cfelse>
<cfset Percentage= 0>
</cfif>

when i excute it, it gives me this error message "Cannot convert 49.0 to number.

Please, check the ColdFusion manual for the allowed conversions between data types"

Note 49 is the totall votes.

Perhaps it considers your data to be strings instead of numbers

Check it this way:
<cfoutput query="GetAllAnswers">
<cfif IsNumeric(GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes) AND IsNumeric(GetAllAnswers.Results)
AND GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes NEQ 0>
<cfset Percentage= lsnumberformat(((
GetAllAnswers.Results/
GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes)*100),
"999.0")>
<cfelse>
  Numbers were either 0 or not numeric: #GetTotalRespondees.TotalVotes#,#GetAllAnswers.Results#<br>
<cfset Percentage= 0>
</cfif>
</cfoutput>
