I still don't get it. I asked someone and they said that the answer was 111. ok, i got it but i still don't understand how to do it since i still have many more problems. could someone please thorougly explain to me in steps how to do a problem like:
12 1/2% of _____= 11 or something like 33 1/3 % of 105 = ________. Please help. I am really confused.
Anytime you see the word "of" in a problem like this, you'll need to multiply. Turn the percent into a decimal (12½% = 12.5% = .125), and then just multiply as you would any decimal multiplication problem.
.125 x ____ = 11
.333 x 105 = _____
Thank you so much. i easily got the point. you just have to convert the fraction into a decimal!
