00:00:00.600 --> 00:00:04.720
Fill in the missing value: blank percent of 50 is 22.
00:00:05.680 --> 00:00:07.950
Let’s represent this percentage by 𝑥.
00:00:07.950 --> 00:00:10.530
And then we’ll take care of the fact that it’s percent at the end.
00:00:11.260 --> 00:00:14.670
So “of” means to multiply.
00:00:15.090 --> 00:00:16.810
And “is” means equals.
00:00:17.380 --> 00:00:20.440
So we have 𝑥 times 50 equals 22.
00:00:21.310 --> 00:00:22.900
And we need to solve for 𝑥.
00:00:22.930 --> 00:00:26.710
So we can do so by dividing both sides of the equation by 50.
00:00:27.430 --> 00:00:33.110
The 50s cancel and 22 divided by 50, and we get that 𝑥 equals 0.44.
00:00:33.590 --> 00:00:34.970
So this is in decimal form.
00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:39.130
And we want a percent to go from a decimal to a percent.
00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:44.630
We need to move the decimal point two places to the right, which would be 44 point.
00:00:44.830 --> 00:00:46.240
And then we can add a zero at the end.
00:00:46.900 --> 00:00:51.630
And then we attach our percentage sign, so 44.0 percent.
00:00:52.740 --> 00:00:55.230
Therefore, our missing value is 44 percent.
00:00:55.710 --> 00:00:59.140
So 44 percent of 50 is 22.
