for future reference

In English 8% of 1200 is read as 8 per cent of 1200
if you ALWAYS replace the word per by a divide and ALWAYS replace cent by 100 and ALWAYS replace of by a multiply you will ALWAYS be able to find a percentage of something. 8 divided by 100 multiplied by 1200 in this particular case.

Another tip: speed is measured on British roads as miles per hour so if you know that something travelled 120 miles in 2hrs 30min then speed is miles per hour (miles measure distance and hrs measure time) and can be calculated as 120 divided by 2.5 (per has been replaced by divide).

Hope this helps a bit.
