Explain the strategy you used to solve this problem?

10% of 20

  • Math {ASAP} -

    I multiply: 0.1 * 20

  • Math {ASAP} -

    put it like this

    100% is 20 then
    10% is x

    now you just have to cross multiply
    so u get .....

    100x=(20) * (10)
    therefore, x=(20)*(10)/100
    x=2

    x=2
