**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 4:45pmThe word "of" means multiply.

Change the percent to a decimal.

30% * 90 = 0.3 * 90 = 27

0.1 x = 70

x = 70/0.1 = 700

I'll be glad to check your answers for the other problems.

**lucy**, Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 5:08pmso.. 3. 4/10 of 30=

4/10 x 30/1=12

and 4. 2/8 to % would be 8 into 2 which equals .25= 25 %
