Problems Involving Percents The most common calculations involving percents involve finding a percentage of some quantity. When writing a percentage statement in symbols, the word “of” becomes multiplication, and the word “is” becomes an equal sign. Also, we must change the percent into decimal or fractional form. 50% of 10 is 5 0.5 x 10 = 5

EXAMPLE 5 Finding a Certain Percentage of a Whole In a class of 66 students, 32% got a B on the first exam. How many students got a B?
