Answer:

#155#

Look at the explanation below.

Explanation:

The word "of" pretty much means to multiply. In order to multiply we want to turn #62%# to a decimal.

#62% 0.62#

in decimal form. With that knowledge, we can take

#0.62 xx 500#

and that should give you #155#. If you are ever given a problem like this just turn the percentage into a decimal and multiply it by the whole number. So for this problem, I would take #62/100# (which is #62%# in fraction form) and that would give me #0.62#.
