# In a class of 250 students, 38% of them commute daily by train. How many people is this?

The answer is $95$ people.

#### Explanation:

To find a percentage of a whole, you take the percent given and divide it by $100$ to return it to a working decimal:

$\left(\frac{38}{100}\right)$ which gives $0.38$.

Now you take that number and multiply by $250$ to come up with the percentage of the class you're wanting to find.

$250 \times 0.38 = 95$ people.
