Answer:

54

Explanation:

First, understand that the word 'percent' literally translates from Latin to mean "for each hundred". This means that 9% is equivalent of saying "nine in each hundred". We can write this as a fraction:

#9%=9/100#

Now that we have a fractional representation, lets do the math:

#9/100xx600=9xx(6cancel(00))/(1cancel(00))#

#rArr 9xx6=color(green)(54 larr ans)#
