# Question #0147a

False

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 30% can be written as $\frac{30}{100}$ and 12% can be written as $\frac{12}{100}$.

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

We can rewrite this problem as:

Is $\frac{30}{100} \times 129 = \frac{12}{100} \times 30$?

$\frac{3870}{100} = \frac{360}{100}$

$38.70 \ne 3.60$

The two values are not equal so this is false.
