Case A Did you mean 48% of 60?
The answer for that is: $28.8$

Case B Did you mean 60% of 48?
The answer for that is: $28.8$

#### Explanation:

x% of $y$ equals decimal form of $x$ multiplied by $y$.

Case A
Here, $x = 48$ and $y = 60$.
48%=0.48 so your equation is
$0.48 \setminus \cdot 60 = 28.8$

Case B
Here, $x = 60$ and $y = 48$.
60%=0.60# so your equation is
$0.60 \setminus \cdot 48 = 28.8$

Oh, that's an interesting coincidence...
