divide 75 by 100, then multiply by 24.

75/100 = 0.75

0.75 x 24 = 18

The book is right.

CROSS MULTIPLY AND DIVIDE

x = 24
--- ---
75 100


24 * 75 = 100x

1800 = 100x
1800 divided by 100 = x
18 = x

x = 18 per cent.


You're welcome.

0.24*75=18

Translate from English to Math.

What number is 24% of 75. "What number" is x, "is" is "=", 24% translates to the fraction 24/100 (by the definition of percent, meaning "out of hundred"), and of is multiplication.

--> x = (24/100) X 75 ==> 1800/100 = 18.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

I just thought it better not to ask.

working backwards:

16.6 X 75
x 100

x=22.133333%

theres your problem
