Could someone explain why we multiply the (p/100*) with P?
I am having trouble grasping why that last multiplication is needed
Thank you for your answers
Key concept #1: p percent = p/100
For example, 17% = 17/100
Key concept #2: p percent of N is the same as p/100 of N
So, for example, 29% of 53 = 29/100 of 53 = (29/100)(53)
Key concept #3: p percent less than N is the same as N - (p percent of N)
For example, 10% less than 8 = 8 - (10% of 8) = 8 - 0.8 = 7.2
So....p percent
less than p = p - (p% of p)
= p - (p/100 of p)
= p - (p/100)(p)
