**Step 1:**

75% = $\frac{75}{100} = \frac{3}{4}$

**Step 2:**

To get 75% of 320 we multiply 160 by $\frac{3}{4}$

75% of 160 = $\frac{3}{4} \times 160 = 120$

**Step 3:**

So, 75% of 160 = 12

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Rewriting 220 = 220.0

**Step 2:**

We find 10%. We move the decimal one place to the left to get 22.0

**Step 3:**

To find 5% we take its half or divide it by 2.

So 5% of 220.0 = $\frac{22.0}{2} = 11.0 = 11$

**Step 4:**

15% of 220 = 10% of 220 + 5% of 220

= 22 + 11 = 33

So, 15% of 220 = 33

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Rewriting 480 = 480.0

50% = $\frac{50}{100} = \frac{1}{2}$
