x=24

First, you convert 20 percent into a decimal, by moving it to the left twice. 20% = .20 Then, you multiply 24 by .20 24 x .20 = 4.8 20 percent off 24 is 4.8. Hope I helped!

2 x 2.4

If the number =x then .2x=answer. --> in words: (20%)*(number)=20% of the number. But percent is (x/y)*100 so you have to divide by 100 to get the number you multiply by; that's why the 20% is 0.2 in the equation.

120 x .20= 24 $24 dollars off $120= $96

What percent of 24 is 150, written as an equation: P * 24 = 150Solve for P = 150/24 = 6.25 which is 625%

Start by setting up an equation. Use x for the integer. The equation would be: x/-3=12+-20 Find the sum of 12 and -20 which is -8. Therefore the equation would now be: x/-3=-8 Multiply -8 by -3 which equals 24. Therefore x=24 Plug it back into the equation to check that it works: 24/-3=12+-20 24/-3=-8 -8=-8 Thefore 24 is the integer that when divided by -3 it equals the sum of 12 and -20.
