Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the way i do it is 150 / 100 = 1.5( this is 1% of 150) then multiply that number by the percentage you want to find which is 42 1.5 * 42 = ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For this type of problems think about it this way. 100% is the whole thing. 50% is a half. So 42% would be something under a half of your number. Your number is 150. 42% is the same as 0.42 (or 42%/100=0.42). So you just multiply 150*0.42=63.
