1462

#### Explanation:

We can simply rewrite 43% as 0.43 (percents are out of 100, so we can do 43/100 to get 0.43).

Next, we can multiply this by 3400 to get our answer:

$0.43 \cdot 3400 = 1462$

To check our answer, we can divide 1462 by 3400, and if we get 0.43, we're correct!:

$\frac{1462}{3400} = 0.43$

43% of $3400$ is $1462$

#### Explanation:

One way to solve this is to use the formula:

P%*x=Y, where

• $P$ is the percent

• $x$ is the value given

• $Y$ is the value of the percent of a number

In this case, P=43% and $x = 3400$

So our formula will look like this:

43%*3400=Y

We are going to convert 43% to a decimal by removing the % sign and dividing it by $100$

So, $\frac{43}{100} = 0.43$

Therefore, our equation is now

$0.43 \cdot 3400 = Y$

Compute and you'll get...

$1462 = Y$

Thus, we can conclude that 43%# of $3400$ is $1462$
