Using a Proportion Set up a proportion that uses the percent over 100. Cross multiply to write an equation. Solve the equation. To set up your proportion, think, “IS over OF equals PERCENT over 100.”

Example – What is 20% of 30? = 20 100 part whole 30 x = 100x 30(20) = 100x 600 100 = x6

4
Using a Decimal Change the percent to a decimal. Multiply that decimal by the number you are finding the percent of.
