What is 62% of 250?

$155$

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

$0.62 \times 500$

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 $\frac{62}{100}$ (which is 62% in fraction form) and that would give me $0.62$.
