That's the problem. When I see the question done it seems to make sense,but when I try it on my own I'm lost. I have no clue where to start. It's very frustrating trying to learn this chapter!

First, draw a picture and note the dimensions.

Take 237 * 15%, which is 237 * 0.15 to get your answer. The other one is solved the same way, just take 78 * 0.15 to get your answer.
