Answer:

19 is 20% of 95.

Explanation:

Percent or % means "out of 100" or "per 100". Therefore 20% can be written as #20/100#.

When working with percents the term "of", as in this problem, means times or multiplication.

Let's call the number we are looking for #n#.

Putting this all together gives us:

#n = (20/100) xx 95#

#n = 1900/100#

#n = 19#
