    Assistance on algebra problem

    Write your string of equation in the form:

    problem
    65%*160=some expression
    =
    = some expression




    What I have done
    .50*160=80
    16*6=96
    96+8=104

    for 160 (10*16)
    for 16 (16/2=8)

    However, I'm not sure if i have done this right because I have followed the book...

    65%=0.65
    So do 160*0.65 to get 104.
    You were right, but this way is far easier.
