# Solve the following word problems for the portion, rate, or base.Municipal Auto Sales advertised a down payment of $1,200 on a Mustang valued at$14,700. What is the percent of the down payment? Round to the nearest tenth of a percent.

To determine

To calculate: The percent of the down payment and round it to the nearest tenth of a percent, if the Municipal Auto Sales publicized a down payment of $1,200 on a Mustang of value$14,700.

Explanation

Given Information:

The Municipal Auto Sales publicized a down payment of $1,200 on a Mustang of value$14,700.

Formula used:

Steps for computing percentage problems;

Step1: Recognize the two known values and the unknown value.

Step2: Pick the formula that solves the unknown value.

Step3: Solve the equation by putting the known values for the letters in the formula.

The formula to compute the rate is;

R=PB

Calculation:

The value of the base is B=$14,700 as the base is the whole amount and here the Mustang valued at$14,700 hence it is the base and the value of portion is P=\$1,200 as it is the part of the base.

Here, percent of the down payment is missing showing that rate is unknown as the rate is the term having % sign
