    or ... 150/100 = 1% 70*150/100 = 70*1%

    Think of the word "of" as a synonym for multiply. 70% is the same as .7, OF (or times) 150 miles. A lot faster than cross multiplying.

    percent means per 100; if we divide it up into 100 peices each piece is 1% then we can add up how many pieces we need to get to whatever percent we want

    150/100 = 15/10 = 3/2 ... is 1%

    3/2 added up 70 times is: 210/2 = 105 i believe
