Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you would do 7 x 9 = ? That equals 63% and then you would take 63% from 49000 and round your final answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, first we would do 7 x 9 which gives us 63 but we need to convert that into a decimal so 63 / 100 = 0.63 then finally we do 0.63 * 49000 = 30870
