Change 18% to a decimal: 0.18
Multiply:
0.18 * 34 = ?

Right.
18% means 18 parts of 100. Another way of writing that is 18 hundredths or 0.18.

thirty percent of what number is 120?

math  melissa, Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 9:36pm
how do u figure that out

math  Ms. Sue, Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 10:58pm
30% = 0.3
Multiply.

math  Graciela, Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 12:26am
You can set up an equation:
30%= .3, so you'll have
.3x= 120 (where x is the number whose 30% is 120)
x= 120/.3
x= 400
You can check by multiply .3 x 400= 120
So 30% of 400 is 120
