    There are two ways to do this depending on what you are more comfortable with.

    10% is the same as .10 (move the decimal place to the left twice and voila!)

    10% is also the same is 10/100 = 1/10

    So, you you are more comfortable multiplying 500 * 0.10 to get 50 or 500/10 to get 50 doesn't really matter because now you know both ways!

    It's .10 (with the decimal point) x 500. That simply moves the decimal in 500 one place to the left.

    50 pages.

    50 x 10 is 500 pages, or 100%.
