Lesson Description:

Students learn to solve "percent" word problems, such as the following. What is 24% of 175? Note that "what" means "x", "24%" means "24/100", "is" means "equals", "of" means "times", and "175" means "175". So this word problem can be translated into the equation x = 24/100 times 175.
