"Percent of" Word Problems

 What percent of 20 is 30? 30 = (x)(20) 30 ÷ 20 = x = 1.5 So Thirty is 150% of 20 What is 35% of 80? x = (0.35)(80) x = 28 Twenty-eight is 35% of 80. 45% of what is 9? 9 = (0.45)(x) 9 ÷ 0.45 = x = 20 Nine is 45% of 20.
A computer software retailer used a markup rate
of 40%. Find the selling price of a computer game
that cost the retailer \$25.

The markup is 40% of the \$25 cost, so the markup is:
(0.40)(25) = 10

Then the selling price, being the cost plus markup, is:
25 + 10 = 35

The item sold for \$35.
