#1**+1 **

To figure out how much is 3% of 100,000,000, let's first understand the language of the problem. In mathematics, "of" is a word that generally refers to multiplication. Knowing this, the problem now changes from "3% of 100000000" to "3% * 100000000:"

\(3\% * 100000000\) | In general, \(a\%=\frac{a}{100}\) |

\(\frac{3}{100}*\frac{100000000}{1}\) | Multiply the fractions together. |

\(\frac{300000000}{100}\) | Simplify the fraction |

\(3000000\) | |

Therefore, 3% of 100000000 is 3000000
