Kathleen had a bag of candy-coated chocolates. Of the 55 candies in the bag, 20% were red, 30% were orange, 30% were green, and 20% were blue. Of the blue ones, 20% had a damaged candy coating. Approximately how many of the blue ones had a damaged candy coating?

    I think you might have to multiply 20 by something

    Yes, but not just 20. You have to work with 20% = 20/100, right?
