Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Initially, ignore the fraction. First find what 3% of 64 is. What do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry for the wait there, that's right, 0.03. So 0.03 * 84 is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(Since we just found what's on the bottom of the fraction.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. 162 / 2.52 is closer to 64.3, I believe.
