Problem Solving: Human bones make up 0.18 of a person's total body weight. How much do the bones of a 120-pound person weigh?

Can u convert this question to the metric system?
If the given is in metric, it's still the same concept, MathGenius. The question is : O.18 what? Is it o.18 percent? I believe it's 18 percent and she has converted it to decimal, 0.18. (Roughly average for men and women, 15 and 12 respectively).


(Check my comment below your question)

0.18 x 120 lbs. = 21.6 lbs. 

18 percent of 120-lb weight is 21.6 lbs.
