2. Note that if you want to find the percentage of a number you have to take the percentage and then divide by 100 then mutiply that by the number you want the percent of.

example:
70% of 200
70% => .70
.70 x 200= 140

and to find the number not included here in the 70% then just subtract the number found from the original number
given, thus:

200- 140= 60
