Answer:

#4320#

Explanation:

Calculate it exactly as it is written....

#108% of 4000 = 108/100 xx4000/1#

#= 4320#

An answer of more than 4000 is exactly what we expected because 100% of 4000 is 4000, but we are finding 108% which is more that 4000.

#108%# is another way to write #1.08#. So, if you take #108%# of #4000#, you multiply #4000# by #1.08#.

#color(blue)(108%xx4000)#

#= 1.08xx4000#

#= (1 + 0.08)xx4000#

#= (1 xx 4000) + (0.08 xx 4000)#

#= 4000 + (8/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(100))) xx 40color(red)(cancel(color(black)(00))))#

#= 4000 + (8 xx 40)#

#= 4000 + 320 = color(blue)(4320)#
