Answer:

#36.63#

Explanation:

Turn the phrase into an equation and solve it. Here are a couple words that will help turn this into an equation:

  1. "Is" means "equals", so wherever you see "is", use a #=# sign.
  2. "Of" means "multiplication", so use a #xx# sign when you see that word.
  3. #11%# is the same as #11/100# as a fraction, or #0.11# as a decimal. I'm going to use the fraction form in the equation.
  4. Use variables for the things you do not know. I will use the variable #x#.

#stackrel(x)overbrace"What"stackrel(=)overbrace"is"stackrel(11/100)overbrace"11%"stackrel(xx)overbrace"of"stackrel(333)overbrace"333"#

#x = 11/100 xx 333#

Now solve the equation:

#x = 11/100 xx 333/1#

#x = (11(333))/(100(1))#

#x = 3663/100#

#x = 36.63#

#36.63# is #11%# of #333#.
