Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "per 100" or "out of 100". Therefore, 35% can be written as #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 = 35/100 xx 600#

#n = 21000/100#

#n = 210#

#color(red)(210)# is 35% of 600.
