I am having trouble completing my homework on finding the amount when the percent and the base are given.

I need help with this question:

Find 10.7% of 485.
can you show all the steps on how you got this answer?

1. Reiny

to convert a percent to a decimal, move the decimal two places to the left, so

10.7% = .107

then .107*485 = 51.895
