la-viee-est-bellee said: All of these people are confusing as shit haha percentages were my favorite part of algebra! It’s 70 over 100=x over 120, then you cross multiply so it turns to 100x=(70)(120), which is 100x=8400, then you divide by 100 both sides and get 84
oratex said: 70 divided by 100 gives u 0.7 then do 0.7x120 and it will give u the percentage :))
h0peless-expectations said: I think of it like 10% of 120 (120 divided by 10) is 12 then multiply 12 by 7 &you get 84, it’s more complicated, but I’m a complicated person, so it works out well :)
h-artenstine said: First, if you get 10%, which is 12, because you move the decimal over one spot to the left, then multiply 12 times 7, you get 84.(:
theunexperienced said: u have to multiply 70 by 120 then divide by 100…so 70% of 120 is 84
varrick666 said: Use a calculator C: loljk. Set it up as a proportion, 70/120 & n/100. multiply 100 x 70 divided by 120
meowwmona said: .7 times 120 or 70 over 100 crossmultiplied by x over 120.
lend-meyour-heart said: 84. wanna know an easy way to do it. 120 is the same as 120.0 if you take the decimal and move it one place to the left you get 12.0 that would be 10% of 120 if you take 12 and multiply it by 7 you get 70 percent! hope this helped
