  4. love-killedher said: You take .70 x 120. (:
  5. love-sick-children-welcome said: is over of. it’ll be 70/100 = x/120 and then cross multiply
  6. slashy-horse said: 120 -:- (divided by) 70 ? sorry, not to sure x
  7. youdontneedtorun said: multiply 120 by 70% on your calculator then subtract your answer from 120.
  8. high-waisted--youth said: x over 120 = 70 over 100 then 100x=8400 then x= 84 so 84 is 70% of 120
  9. kelc6028 said: X over 120 70% over 100. 120x70 Ans/100 =the answer!
  10. up-on-melancholyhill said: you multiply 120 by 0.7 hope that helps!
  11. 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

    84 ;)
  15. oratex said: 70 divided by 100 gives u 0.7 then do 0.7x120 and it will give u the percentage :))
  16. fluttering-daisies 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 :)
  17. 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.(:
  18. theunexperienced said: u have to multiply 70 by 120 then divide by 100…so 70% of 120 is 84
  19. varrick666 said: Use a calculator C: loljk. Set it up as a proportion, 70/120 & n/100. multiply 100 x 70 divided by 120
  20. meowwmona said: .7 times 120 or 70 over 100 crossmultiplied by x over 120.
  21. 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
  22. entwined-love said: That’s 84! ;)
  23. 99redballoonsgobye said: itsss 84 !
  24. rainbowsandstraightunicorns said: I hope this isn’t true… but if it is, 10% of 120 is 12, so 12x7=84
  25. somedudenamedawesome said: just suck her dick already LOL
  26. vogue-citizen said: Find what ten percent of it is. So that would be 12. Then multiply by 7 to get 70 percent, which is 84. :)
  27. cherrywings said: 1% of 120 is 1.20 70% of 120 is 1.20 x 70 hope you get it :)
  28. the-vintage-one said: You take 120 * .7 = 84. .7 is equivilant to 70%
  29. ev-o-let said: 70/120 x 100 (:
  30. heyitskathryn said: 70 divided by 100 then multiply by 120 :)
  31. ic3d said: its 84! :)
  32. crystaliser said: 12x7=84, it’s like taking this 120 and divide it too 100 cause you have 100%, it’s really hard to explain
  33. s-weetserenade said: 70% is equal to 0.7 So multiply 0.7 to 120 and it’s 84. :)

  38. fluffypandaaaa said: 70/100*120 :)
  39. orgasm said: 120 divided by 0.70 because you need to put the percentage you are dividing into a decimal <3
