Answer

108

Work Step by Step

This is a part because we are asked to find what part of 150 is 72 percent. In order to find a part, we take the percentage and divide it by 100 to turn it into a decimal. We multiply this decimal by the original number to get the answer. Thus, we divide 72 by 100 to get .72. We multiply 150 by .72 to get an answer of 108.
