23.55 x 2.8% = 0.6594

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 2.8% can be written as $\frac{2.8}{100}$.

Finally, lets call the number we are looking for "n".

Putting this altogether we can write this equation and solve for $n$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$n = 23.55 \times \frac{2.8}{100}$

$n = \frac{65.94}{100}$

$n = 0.6594$
