38

#### Explanation:

Multiply 20% by 190 (remember that you cannot multiply 190 by 20, 20% does not equal 20, it equals a decimal)

20%=0.2 rarr To convert a percentage to a decimal, divide the number by 100

$\frac{20}{100} = 0.2$

$0.2 \cdot 190 = 38$

Or, multiply 190 by the fraction $\frac{1}{5}$, which is equal to 20% ($\frac{20}{100}$) and 0.2

$\frac{20}{100} = \frac{2}{10} = \frac{1}{5}$

$190 \cdot \frac{1}{5}$

$\frac{190}{5}$

$38$
