    thanks so u move the decimal two to the left on the first #

    Right.

    18% means 18 parts of 100. Another way of writing that is 18 hundredths or 0.18.

    thirty percent of what number is 120?

  • math -

    how do u figure that out

  • math -

    30% = 0.3

    Multiply.

  • math -

    You can set up an equation:

    30%= .3, so you'll have

    .3x= 120 (where x is the number whose 30% is 120)

    x= 120/.3
    x= 400

    You can check by multiply .3 x 400= 120

    So 30% of 400 is 120
