How would you estimate using fractions to find the percentage of a number. For example: 28% of 48.

If you want 28% of 48 you just take the percentage and multiply by the number you want.
The percantage is 28% but you need to convert it to a fraction. 28/100 = .28
So then you multiply
(.28)(48) = 13.44
So 28% of 48 = 13.44 =) 
Meant you need to convert the percent into a decimal =P Lol
