Of the 6 grade students surveyed, 12% bring their lunch. SUppose 24 six graders do this, how many six graders are there.

I would like you to show me how to do this, (Mom) so that I can explain to my son. Thanks.

Here is an easy way to understand these kind of percent problems

12% = 24
so 1% = 24/12 = 2 (I divided by 12)
then 100% = 2*100 = 200

check: 12% of 200 = .12(200) = 24
