#### Answer:

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "per 100" or "out of 100". Therefore, 35% can be written as $\frac{35}{100}$.,

When dealing with percentages like this "of" means to multiply.

Let's call the number we are looking for $n$.

Putting this all together and solving for $n$ gives:

$n = \frac{35}{100} \times 600$

$n = \frac{21000}{100}$

$n = 210$

$\textcolor{red}{210}$ is 35% of 600.
