15 percent multiplied by 440 equals what?

The question is asking us to find 15 percent of 440. This bar model helps us to understand what the question is asking us to find: 15 percent of 440. If we partition 15 into 10 and five, then we can find 10 percent of 440. We can halve this to find five percent of 440 and then add these two amounts together to give us 15 percent.

To find 10 percent of 440, we need to divide 440 by 10, which is 44. Next, we need to find five percent of 440. Since five is half of 10, we could halve 44 to tell us what five percent of 440 is. Half of 44 is 22. By adding together 10 percent and five percent, or 44 and 22, we can find 15 percent of 440, which is 66.

15 percent of 440 or 15 percent multiplied by 440 is 66. First, we found 10 percent of 440. We halved this to find five percent and added the two amounts together to give us our answer.
