    \[785\% \text{ of } 4 =\frac{785}{100}*4=\frac{157}{5}=31.4\]

    Let me tell you a little tip that will help you in some math problems...." of " in all math problems means multiply, just like " is " means equals. Now look at your problem again...785% of 4. Write it like it is written...785% x 4. Now you need to turn your percent into a decimal. Do you know how to do that ? I will show you...to turn a percent into a decimal ....take your percent and move it two spaces to the left, and turn it into a decimal. 785 % = 7.85 (you see how I moved it two places to the left) Now your problem reads 7.85 x 4...now you just multiply and your answer is ....(31.4)

    I see where someone has helped you you do know that you place four over the number one dont you and then follow the rules for multiplication

    If I am seeing it correctly, it is asking 785% of 4. Translating this into a mathematical equation would mean 785 x 4 = 3140.

    Let me try to answer it again. 785% of 4 is 7.85 x 4 = 31.4. To make it clear, (785/100) * 4 = 7.85 * 4 = 31.4. 100% of any number is the number itself, which means 100% of 4 is 4. 1% of 4 is 0.04 -> (1/100) * 4 = 0.01 * 4 = 0.04 So, 785% of 4 is 31.4 -> 785 * 0.04 = 31.4 Once again, (785/100) * 4 = 7.85 * 4 = 31.4 Hope this helps.
