Best Answer

To find the percent of any number, multiply the percent by 1/100 to convert it into decimal form, then multiply that decimal with the other unused number.

20% = 0.2

so 0.2(149) = 29.8

20% of $149 is $29.80

Another way of looking at it: since 20% = 1/5, finding 20% of something is just the same as dividing it by 5. So, $149 / 5 = $29.80.
