Set up the problem and solve it: Sales * %commission = earnings (now insert the known numbers) 1800 * .06 = earnings (6% is the same as .06, now multiply to solve) 108 = earnings Now, to find how much he will have to sell to earn $120 using the same formula: sales * %commission = earnings (now insert the known numbers) sales * .06 = 120 (now divide both sides of the equation by .06) sales = 120/ .06 (do the division and solve) sales = 2000 (Mr Sellers needs to sell $2000 to earn $120 in commission)
$13.60 so solve this, multiply 34* 0.4 this will leave you with 13.6 convert this to dollars, and you will get $13.60
You can solve this by taking $670 x .01, which equals $6.70.
That depends on what the question is. A percent is just a number. You're asking "How do you solve a number?"
To solve this, multiply the two values. 0.036 (decimal moved to the left 2 spots) * 82 = 2.952
If the 3.5 percent is per year, with simple interest you have the equation: 2142 = 15300*0.035*t ; then solve for t = 4, so 4 years.
To find the percent of something take the percent and move the decimal point two places to the left (25% becomes .25) and then multiply that number by the number you want the percent of (so .25x60).
To solve or simplify something
70 * % = 14 Solve for percent and get 0.2, or 20%.
A percent is simply a proportion out of 100.
