**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 5:15pmYour first answer is right.

If you take 20% of 100, you'll get $20. It looks like Katherine's estimate is way off.

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 5:17pmAnother way to approach this problem is to look the relationship between 9 and 90. 9 is 10% of 90, right?
