----------ASIDE---------

It's quite easy find 1% of a number.
You need only move the decimal point, 2 spaces to the LEFT
For example: 1% of 613.89 = 6.1389
1% of 1234.56 = 12.3456
1% of 30000 = 300
etc

------------NOW BACK TO THE QUESTION!------------

Fundraising represents 4% of the pie chart

So, 4% of the $7,200,000 budget is from fundraising

So, what is 4% of $7,200,000?

Well, 1% of $7,200,000 = $72,000
So, 2% of $7,200,000 = $144,000
And 4% of $7,200,000 = $288,000

Answer: 280,000
