    Initially, ignore the fraction. First find what 3% of 64 is. What do you get?

    Not quite. What is 3% in decimals?

    Sorry for the wait there, that's right, 0.03. So 0.03 * 84 is?

    Exactly. So then you have 162 / 2.52.

    (Since we just found what's on the bottom of the fraction.)

    What do you mean? The bottom of the fraction was `3% of 84', so we found 3% of 84 (2.52) and then put it in the bottom of the fraction to get 162 / 2.52.

    Not quite. 162 / 2.52 is closer to 64.3, I believe.
