Answer:

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

#20/100=0.2#

#0.2*190=38#

Or, multiply 190 by the fraction #1/5#, which is equal to 20% (#20/100#) and 0.2

#20/100=2/10=1/5#

#190*1/5#

#190/5#

#38#
