First let's think about a simpler problem:     Find  3/4  of  20  .

We want to take  20  , divide it into  4  parts of equal amount, and take  3  of them.

20/4  =  5   ( Think...  5 + 5 + 5 + 5  =  20 )

So... one fourth of  20  is  5  .  Three fourths of  20  is  3 * 5 , or  15 .

3/4  of  20   =   3 * 20/4   =   3 * 5   =   15

Using the same logic.... we can find  21/25  of  \$27,000 .

21/25  of  \$27,000   =   21 *  \$27,000/25   =   21  *  \$1080   =   \$22,680

A new law requires that 12% of an individual's income be invested in the stock market. Your accounts show that you need to put \$420 in the stock market this year. How much did you earn this year.

12%  of your income  =  amount you need to put in the stock market

12%  of your income  =  \$420

12/100 of your income  =  \$420

12/100  *  your income  =  \$420

0.12  *  your income   =  \$420      Divide both sides of this equation by  0.12  .

your income   =   \$420 / 0.12

Estimate an 18% tip for a 63.50 meal.

It says to estimate...so let's say that is about  20% of 60

20%  of  60   =   20/100  of  60   =   2/10  of  60   =   2  *  60/10   =   2 * 6   =   12

Find the percent of markup. Round to the nearest tenth. \$33.00 to \$45.00

\$33  +  (percent of markup * \$33)   =   \$45         Subtract  \$33  from both sides of this equation.

percent of markup * \$33   =   \$12       Divide both sides by  \$33 .

percent of markup   ≈   0.364   =   36.4/100   =   36.4%
