Please explain this problem:
25% of 162

See the first post I answered for you.

Rule # one = When you see the percent sign its over 100! so x%=x/100
Rule # 2 = In word problems, when u see the word "of" it means multiplication symbol...well not in all cases but in most cases especially when dealing w. percent stuff.
so 25% of 162 means (25/100) times 162 which equals 41.
But also know that 25% is just saying one fourth of something.....like lets say u said...i am positive i got 1/4 of the test right and assume the test had 162 questions. basically you are saying i got "25% of 162" questions right.
Hope that helped!
