Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when know the value of 1 part, all we do is add up however many of those we need. and when we add the same thing multiple times ... its called multiplication.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is a percentage formula that works for every percent problem. is/of = %/100 6.25% of 190 is what number ? of = 190 is = x % = 6.25 now we sub x/190 = 6.25/100  this is now a proportion, so we will cross multiply 100x = (190)(6.25) 100x = 1187.50 x = 1187.50/100 x = 11.875 check.. 6.25% of 190 = .0625(190) = 11.875 and this formula works for every percent problem....just be sure you sub in the numbers in the right spots
