Answer:

#63#

Explanation:

We can set up the following ratio:

#42/100=x/150#

Which compares the percent to the number we're trying to take the percent of. We can cross multiply and we get:

#x=(42*150)/100#

Dividing both top terms by #2# and dividing the bottom by #4# (because we divided by #2# twice on top)

#x=(color(blue)(21)cancel42*color(blue)(75)cancel150)/(color(blue)(25)cancel100)#

#x=63#

Therefore, #42%# of #150# is #63#

Hope this helps!
