You should be getting the hang of this by now> Post your work if you get stuck OR show what you have done and explain in detail what you don't understand.

No.

When a problem in percent is presented, often it has the word of in it. For example, in this problem, "His total deductions are 30% **of** his pay." When the word of is used in this manner, it means times. So 0.30 x 2080 = the amount deducted.
