In the equation $P = B \times R$, $P = \text{part}$, $B = \text{base, or whole}$, and $R = \text{rate, or percent}$. Use the following forms of the equation to solve the application problems.

$P = B \times R\\[10pt]$

$B = \dfrac{P}{R}\\[10pt]$

$R = \dfrac{P}{B}\\[10pt]$

You will first need to read the problem carefully to determine whether base, part, or rate is unknown. Round rates to the nearest tenth of a percent.
