Change 85% to a decimal which is 0.85 and then times it by 20:

0.85*20 = ?

You times them together and you'll get your answer. Hope I helped!

Make a proportion, and then make 85% into a fraction which is 85 over 100. Then make 20 int a fraction with a variable as the denominator and if you see that 20 can not go In to 85%. Then you cross multiply....I hope that helped a little
