Answer:

#10%# means #1/10# or divide by #10#

Explanation:

#10%# is the same as the fraction #10/100# which is #1/10#

To find one tenth of a number, simply divide it by #10#.

The easiest way to do that is to :

  • cross off a zero at the end if there is one
  • move the decimal one place to the left.

#10%# of #250 = 25cancel0 =25#

#10% # of #38.7 = 3.87#

#10% " of " 4700 = 470#
