## mariposa1415 3 years ago What percent of 67 is 33? Round to the nearest tenth of a percent

1. Dido525

Remember "of" means multiplying.

2. mariposa1415

so is 67*33

3. CliffSedge

and "percent" means divide by 100.

4. CliffSedge

To translate into math symbols: "What" -> 'x' "percent" -> '÷100' "of" -> 'multiplied by' "is" -> '='
