# What is 90% of 41?

Apr 21, 2016

36.9

#### Explanation:

Another way of writing 90% is $\frac{90}{100}$

In the same way that half of $x$ is $\frac{1}{2} \times x$

$\frac{90}{100} \text{ of } 41 \to \frac{90}{100} \times 41$

If you write $41 \text{ as } \frac{41}{1}$ then you have

$\frac{90}{100} \times \frac{41}{1} = \frac{90 \times 41}{100 \times 1}$

$= \frac{3690}{100}$

$= 36.9$
