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?

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
