These are basic rules of % GRE problems, however.

If you do nor re-brush your math skills then is difficult to attack more difficult questions.

Translating math into words

P % of 3P is P % less than P

P% means \(\frac{P}{100}\)

of 3P means * 3P

is means =

P% less than p means a certain quantity such as 100 less a certain % we could say 10% which is equal to 90%

As such, P - (P/100*P). If you wanna from 100 to arrive directly to 90 you multiply 100* 0.9 and the result is 90.

Hope this helps.

Regards
