# A local little league has a total of 80 ​players, of whom ​20% are​ left-handed. How many​ left-handed players are​ there?

There are $16$ left-handed players.

#### Explanation:

What you are trying to find is what is 20% of the total of $80$ players.

So the equation is $\frac{20}{100} \cdot 80$

$\frac{2}{1 \left(\cancel{0}\right)} \cdot 8 \cancel{0}$

$2 \cdot 8$

$16$

There are $16$ left-handed players.
