    divide, as an example 3 into 4, and you get.75... now multiply that by 100 and thats the percent 3 is of 4

    • @bud126, you are right. I understood what you meant, though, @plink. Thanks for jogging my memory. :)

    you just put the smaller number as a numerator and the larger as denominator. Then multiply or divide by the same number until you get the denominator to 100. Multiply the denominator first.

    For example: You have two numbers: 2 and 5. You make that 2/5. You then multiply by logical numbers, like 2, 3, 5, 10, etc. I can multiply the 5 by 20 to get 100, so i multiply the 2 by 20, which would be 40. The fraction is now 40/100, which is 40%.

    By dividing. For example.

    If I want to know the percentage that 3 is of 4 then I divide 4 by 3 which will get me .75 which is 75%. The seven is in the tenths place, so it is equal to 70. The 5 is in the hundreths place. It's equal to 5. 100% is equal to 1.00.

    .05 is equal to 5 percent

    .50 is equal to 50 percent

    Hope that helps

    For example, if you are asked to work out 10% of 100 you simply divide 100 by 10 and your answer is 10. Therefore if you were asked to find 60% of 100 you would times the 10% by 6 and you would get 60, simple.

    Divide then times by 100

    10 % of 50 is 5

    50% of 10 is 5

    This rule of switching the percentage and original number shows that the answer is always the same for both opposite percentages....

    One more example....

    25 % of 100 = 25

    100% of 25 = 25
