Answer:

23.55 x 2.8% = 0.6594

Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 2.8% can be written as #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 xx 2.8/100#

#n = 65.94/100#

#n = 0.6594#
