**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 9:10pmRight.

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

**Graciela**, Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 12:26amYou 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
