12 gray out of 64. Find the percent: 12 divided by 64 = ?? (you'll get a decimal, no need to move decimal to make a percent--just keep the decimal for the next step.

Next step: 400 x the decimal found above = ?? and this answer will tell you how many gray sweatshirts to order in the 400 lot.

Then, check your work:

--Does 12 divided by 64 = the number found for gray out of 400 divided by 400?

If it does, celebrate! If not, try again. . . The great part is that you can check yourself!
