You need to find 55% of 47,237 To find a percent of a number, change the percent into a decimal by dividing the percent by 100. Then multiply it by the number. For example, find 18% of 200. Change 18% into a decimal: 18/100 = 0.18 Now multiply 0.18 by 200 0.18 * 200 = 36 This means that 18% of 200 is 36 Now do the same with your numbers.
