If 15% of the apples picked one afternoon are rotten, then I would expect that the number of apples picked multiplied by 0.15 yields the approximate number of rotten apples.

If I place 30 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that $$30*0.15\text{ or }4.5$$ pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.

If I place 20 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that $$20*0.15\text{ or }3$$ pieces of paper read "rotten." This is a match, and it is the correct answer.

If I place 15 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that $$15*0.15\text{ or }2.25$$ pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.

If I place 12 equally-sized pieces of paper in a hat, then I would expect that $$12*0.15\text{ or }1.8$$ pieces of paper read "rotten."--not 3.
