40% of 70% may seem difficult, but parsing the expression's different parts is essential to being able to understand this

"Of" is an indicator of multiplication. Knowing this, the expressions changes to $$40\%*70\%$$.

 $$40\%*70\%$$ A number in a percentage is the same as the number over 100. $$\frac{40}{100}*\frac{70}{100}$$ Simplify both fractions with its GCF. $$\frac{2}{5}*\frac{7}{10}$$ Now, multiply both the fractions. $$\frac{14}{50}=0.28=28\%$$

Don't get confused by the idea of   'per cent   X   another per cent'   which I think is bothering you. 'Per Cent' just means

'hundredth'.

So 40 per cent   X  70 per cent  is just   40 hundredths    X    70 hundredths.

Which is   40/100   X   70/100

Which is 4/10   X  7/10   =28/100     which is 28  hundredths   which is 28%.
