How would you estimate using fractions to find the percentage of a number. For example: 28% of 48.

If you want 28% of 48 you just take the percentage and multiply by the number you want.

The percantage is 28% but you need to convert it to a fraction. 28/100 = .28

So then you multiply

(.28)(48) = 13.44

So 28% of 48 = 13.44 =)
