    for the first evaluate 900 + .07*900 or just do
    1.07*900

    for the second let the total time taken be x minutes, then solve

    .4x = 300

    Do the third the same way.

    You need to find 7% of 900. Turn you percent into a decimal (.07) and multiply by 900. Add this answer to your original number (900) and you will have the answer.

    The easiest way I can think of to do this one is to set it up like a proportion. 40% takes 300 sec. so 100% will take ?
    40/300 = 100/x Multiply top to bottom and divide by the other number 300 x 100 then divide by 40.

    You are looking for 85% of 8,882 so just turn the percent to a decimal and multiply. Make sure your answers make sense!
