    \[\Large {\color{red}{120}}\% \ \text{ of } \ 70 = \left( \frac{{\color{red}{120}}}{100} \right)*70 = ???\] take that result and add that to 70 to get your answer

    hmm I could be misinterpreting this. It might be simply 1.2*70 = 84 is your answer but I'm thinking that he made 84 more dollars on top of the 70

    84 + 70 is that what you mean?

    At Priscilla's Purse Warehouse, it takes 2 over 3 of a day to complete 1 over 9 of an order of purses. At this rate, how long will it take to complete the entire order of purses? 3 and 2 over 3 days 5 days 6 days 13 and 1 over 2 days

    we basically have this ratio 2/3 days: 1/9 jobs multiply both sides by 9 to get 9*(2/3) days: 9*(1/9) jobs 18/3 days: 9/9 jobs 6 days: 1 job so it takes 6 days to do the job
