70 is 70% of 100. If we have the number 99 instead of 100, the new price will be 69.30. Is 69.30 70% of 99? Does any number reduced by 30%, becomes 70% of the original price?
I am sometimes confused by percentages word problems, so I ask simple, stupid questions. Do not blame me lol. Anyway, your explanation was so clear. Thank you very much

The ONLY stupid question is the one not asked ... get my drift?!
Btw, remember that % or percent means "per hundred"; if you have 37 apples in a bag containing
100 fruits, then the contents are 37% apples.
