how do i find the precent. 12 of 170

  • math -

    do you mean 12% of 170? if so, i believe you would multiply .12 by 170

  • math -

    i usually use the a over b = percent over 100 formula... make 2 fractions w/ an equal sign in between, on one, put a over b (in ur case, 12 over 170) and the a "p" over 100...cross multiply and then u should be left with 2 numbers, one next to ur "p", then divide...u get it?

    Yep, same thing. I use both ways.
