Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We need to translate this word problem into a math equation and solve the equation. In math, "is" means an equal sign. "What" is an unknown, so we can use x. "Percent" means divide by 100. "Of" means times. Fortytwo is what percent of 70? < English 42 = x /100 * 70 < Math You have this equation: \(42 = \dfrac{x}{100} \times 70\) \(42 = \dfrac{70x}{100} \) \(4200 = 70x\) \(70x = 4200\) \(x = 60\) Answer: 42 is 60% of 70.
