3.1% (1/100%) = 0.031

The word 'of' usually means to multiply.

0.031 x 273 = 8.46300

Now round to 2 digits, since 3.1% only has 2>>> 8.5 <<<

Never answer a question with more digits than were given!

To calculate percent, multiply the percent (as a decimal) times the number.

3.1% --> 0.031 (move the decimal two places to the right and remove the percent sign).

Multiply that by 273 to get the answer.

0.031 * 273 = 8.463

If that's an amount, you probably want to round to 2 decimal places.

Answer:

~8.46
