## Tips for percentage

1. Finding the percentage of a Number

To determine the percentage of a number, do the following steps:

Multiply the number by the percentage (e.g. 31 * 56 = 1736)
Divide the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the left) (e.g. 1736/100 = 17.36)
Round to the desired precision (e.g. 17.36 rounded to the nearest whole number = 17)

2. Determining percentage

Example: 68 is what percentage of 87?

Divide the first number by the second (e.g. 68 ?87 = 0.7816)
Multiply the answer by 100 (Move decimal point two places to the right) (e.g. 0.7816*100 = 78.16)
Round to the desired precision (e.g. 78.16 rounded to the nearest whole number = 78)
Follow the answer with the % sign (e.g. 68 is 78% of 87)

Round the answer to the desired precision.
