Answer:

52% of 200 is 104.

Explanation:

Let's call the percent we are looking for #x%#

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

When dealing with percents the word "of" means "times" or "to multiply".

Putting this altogether we can write this equation and solve for #n# while keeping the equation balanced:

#x/100 xx 200 = 104#

#200x/100 = 104#

#2x = 104#

#(2x)/2 = 104/2#

#x = 52#
