Percents: Percent Translation

287 is 6% of which of the following?
Correct. [[snippet]] You need to find the number that 300 is 6% of. Translate the problem into an equation: >$$300 = 6\% \text{ of } z$$ >$$300 = \frac{6}{100}\times z$$ >$$z = 300 \times \frac{100}{6} = 50 \times 100 = 5{,}000$$ So 287 is 6% of a number slightly less than 5,000. Eliminate C and D. If you're not sure about A, eliminate it by __Reverse Plugging In__—If A is the answer, then 6% of about 4,300 should equal 287. However, 6% of 4,300 is >$$\frac{6}{100}\times 4{,}300 = 6\times 43 = 258$$. That's too small, so B must be the answer.
