1. anonymous

do u know how to start?

2. anonymous

turn80% to a decimal

3. anonymous

umm..no.. ok see any PERCENT means PER CENT =PER 100

4. anonymous

so 80 percent is 80 per 100 = 80/100 so 80% of 30 = (80/100) X 30 understand?

5. anonymous

$\huge\frac{ 80 }{ 100}\times 30$

6. anonymous

100*30/80

7. anonymous

8. anonymous
