what you would do it divide 20 by 100 so that there 100 equal pieces of 20. Next you would multiply what you get when you divide 20 by 100, you should of have gotten 0.2.               So it should look like this right now 20 / 100 = 0.2 Now all you have to do is multiply 0.2 by 17 to get what percent 17 would be. After multiplying 0.2 to 17 you should of have gotten 3.4. So 3.4 would be 17 % of 20                                                               I hope this helped

The question is asking 17 = x% of 20. It's very easy to look at this problem backward, so be careful! Let's solve the equation... 17 = x% of 20 17 = 20x 17/20 = x .85 = x multiply by 100 to convert back into a percentage. .85 × 100 = 85% 17 is 85% of 20
