@michellemater You can do it without a calculator and without multiplying the numbers out. Just read my last reponse.

14. michellemater

@mathstudent55

15. mathstudent55

Right, 60 is half of 120. Since 44% is close to 50%, and 50% means half, you need to choose an answer that is close to half of 120, which means close to 60. Which of your choices is the closest to 60?
