From: erica To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 1998113017:21:31 Subject: teaching percents Another good way to teach percentages is the same thing that Jamie said up above, but I learned it like this: fifty five percent of 60 is what? 55 x  =  100 60 Then, you cross multiply 100x = 3300 And divide: 100x 3300  &  100 100 So, x=33. 33 is 55% of 60.
