What is 0.8% of $4,900?

1 Answer

Answer:

#0.008*$4,900=$39.2#

Explanation:

So, percents are essentially just a way to simplify the fraction of #x/100#. So #1%# means #1/100# out of something. In this case, #0.8%# means #0.8/100#, which is equal to #0.008# of #4900#.

And, remember that the trigger word "of" means multiplication. Putting it all together

#0.008*$4900=$39.2#

Hope that helps!
