# Is Twenty percent of seventy greater than 10 percent of one hundred?

Nov 5, 2016

Yes.

#### Explanation:

Calculate both percentages.

$x = \frac{20}{100} \times 70$

$x = \frac{1400}{100}$

$x = 14$

$y = \frac{10}{100} \times 100$

$y = 10$

Therefore 20% of $70$ which is $14$ is greater that 10% of $100$ which is $10$.
