Answer:

False

Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 30% can be written as #30/100# and 12% can be written as #12/100#.

When dealing with percents the word "of" means "times" or "to multiply".

We can rewrite this problem as:

Is #30/100 xx 129 = 12/100 xx 30#?

#3870/100 = 360/100#

#38.70 != 3.60#

The two values are not equal so this is false.
