I've been trying to work this out. Can someone please explain to me how I can work this out but don't just give me the answer Please.

Ms. Sue
Find the total number of students.
Then find the percentage that are 8th graders.
Multiply that percent by 360. 
Ann
Thank you so much. I think it's C

Ann
I mean B!!

Ms. Sue
Yes. B is right.

Ann
Thank you. sorry to bother you again but I had another problem like this. How do I change something to a percent? if I was using 360 degrees. How would I change a number to a percent so i can create a pie graph

Ms. Sue
Multiply the decimal by 100.
36% means 36 out of 100 = 0.36
