Another Problem 1
Question:
 (a)
 33.101 cm is 51.1% of what amount?
 (b)
 18.2 in is what percent of 10.1 ft?
 (c)
 What is 5.4% of 80.0045 kg?
Solution: (a) 64.8 cm, (b) 15.0%, (c) 4.3 kg
Sketch:
Translating each into math (after converting inches to feet!) gives:
(a)
33.101 = .511 * x
64.77698 = x
(b)
1.5166667 = x * 10.1
.15016502 = x
(c)
x = .054 * 80.0045
x = 4.320243
So the answers are: (a) 64.8 cm, (b) 15.0%, (c) 4.3 kg
