# Solve the following for the portion. Round to hundredths when necessary.What number is 258% of 2,500?

To determine

To calculate: The number, which is 258% of 2,500.

Explanation

Given Information:

Provided expression is 258% of 2,500.

Formula used:

Step 1: Recognize the two known values and the unknown value.

Step 2: Pick the formula that computes the unknown value.

Step 3: Solve the equation by putting the known values for the variables in the formula.

The formula to compute the portion is:

Portion=Rate×Base or P=R×B

Calculation:

Consider the expression, 258% of 2,500.

The value of rate is R=258% as rate is the term having % sign and the value of base is B=2,500 as the base is the whole amount headed by the word “of”.

Here the missing value is portion.

The formula to compute the portion is Portion=Rate×Base
